Polysemic work with a broad variety of clients to make new places & improve existing ones. Our particular interest is anywhere where people gather and projects often include elements of theatre, music or live events. We collaborate with architects, engineers and other consultants to help people do things they have never done before.
Our experience ranges from the design & delivery of high specification permanent performance venues to hands-on community construction and temporary structures for festivals. If any of that sounds interesting, we want to hear from you. We enjoy a challenge.
