CRAIGIEBURN SECONDARY COLLEGE

PERFORMING ARTS CENTRE

An extension to the existing music department, the Performing Arts Centre will house a 300 seat auditorium and stage.

The external material pallete of grey blockwork and black metal cladding sit comfortably amongst the surrounding asphalt car park and black metal entry gate, also slightly camouflaged by native gumtrees.

The plywood lining to the porch and foyer are a stark contrast to the external materials, drawing the user inside. Reinforced by the slight angled walls and ceiling funnelling viewers into the theatre.

Once inside the theatre, the viewers are embraced by the warmth of an acoustic ply ceiling, and grey soft touch acoustic pinboard to the walls. The theatre seats vary in two tones of dramatic red, reminiscent of a red velvet stage curtain.
