Located literally “west of the Pecos”, Fort Stockton is a small community of about 8,000 people. Despite its size, the town has an active community theatre that for years has performed in a repurposed brick commercial building. We were asked to assist the group in identifying their functional needs and developing a concept for how those needs could be addressed architecturally. We developed a design that reused their existing structure while creating a new identity for the theatre that referenced both the existing downtown cityscape as well as the surrounding desert plateau landscape.


“You all are absolutely awesome. Thank you so much for taking us on. Your creativity, talent, humor, insight, and the list goes on, amaze me. Finding you was my lucky day!”

-Alice Duerksen, Theatre Director
