Oregon Shakespeare Festival Master Plan & Space Needs Analysis

Ashland, OR

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival is an exceptionally dynamic organization that has grown in multiple buildings over time.  OSF wanted to address the crowding and fragmentation of departments in multiple buildings and hired ORW to establish a holistic view of all departmental space needs, as well as enhance and organize their existing buildings.  ORW met with leaders and staff of 17 groups representing 26 departments, documented existing conditions in 10 buildings, created space plan layouts for all departments, and proposed a phasing plan to implement the work.  The new space plans included layouts for all existing buildings, an addition to the Bowmer theater, and concepts for 3 new buildings.
