Project details

A new architectural icon for an historic townscape.

We won this international competition with a distinctive oval design. Our 1200-seat auditorium rises through the centre of the oval to deliver a striking outline in pre-patinated copper.

Inside, the auditorium has a movable floor, which can be flat or raked to suit a wide range of music, performance and conference uses.

Our 150-seat multi-function room is just as versatile, providing many combinations of flat, acoustically adjusted day-lit space.

The glazed, south-facing foyer forms an extension to the new public square beyond.

Spanking new, beautifully appointed and massively successful concert Hall.
