The Vault Theater re-envisions a 1948 branch bank building into a modern and intimate performing arts venue that is the new home for Bag & Baggage Productions, an accomplished regional theatre company based in Hillsboro, OR. The new theater features a highly adaptable black box space that integrates innovative video based production format. The Opsis design inserts a plywood clad black box theater within the existing volume as a discrete object. Concealed plywood doors hinge open to the lobby and adjoining courtyard to transform the theatre in a public market, visual arts gallery or events space.

Mid-century modern features including the bank vault and wood decked ceiling are retained as artifacts and featured in the design. A new mezzanine level incorporates sound and light booths, offices, restrooms, lounge, and storage. Dressing rooms, prop storage, and support spaces are situated in the basement. The adjacent outdoor area offers a flexible gathering space to be used as an event or theatrical performance space.
