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.
