Award winning production architect Sevak Petrosian, practices a comprehensive skillset in constructing strong concepts, planning, art directing, and thus following through to Schematic Design and Design Development.

Sevak works very closely with the Show Designer to satisfy the integrity of the design and the story, while accommodating all the technical aspects of the project.
For 20 years Sevak took opportunities as lead designer and production architect in some of the largest companies in the industry such as Landmark Entertainment, Disney Imagineering, Paramount Parks, Universal Studios and Goddard Group. In working with these companies, Sevak contributed to concepts for Disney Shanghai, Six Flags Dubai Land, and for built projects like Star Trek the Experience In Las Vegas (US), Universal Studios (Osaka Japan), Dream World water Park and theme Park (Fushun China), and House of Magic at Galaxy resort & casino (Macau).

Sevak envisioned Nextep as a futurist firm where the process would involve design strategies that continuously take the project into the “Nextep”.
Sevak continues to work in multiple countries, aware of their local culture, and expresses initial concepts through his powerful hand drawn renderings. He works closely with his team to pull these concepts into specialized drawings and communicate with various vocational operators. Sevak uses his practical experience from built projects to fuel his ability for rational design, taking into account the entire process, including project limitations and local opportunities. His accomplishments in Entertainment Architecture, project process, efficient design and most importantly, team work, allows Sevak’s insight to provide every project with a unique, successful, reliable and friendly solution.
