A multi-use performance theatre and hall is the benchmark project for Dimond Architects.
February 9th, 2012
The new theatre and performance hall at Matthew Flinders Anglican College in Buderim, Queensland is a multi-functional space serving both the College and the wider community.
Designed by Dimond Architects, the building accommodates 600 for drama performance, can be adapted to accommodate 1300 students for a school assembly or seat 500 at tables for dining.
The complex incorporates a main auditorium, a dance studio, café and bar areas, uniform and bookshop, commercial kitchen and tuck shop.
Situated at the gateway to the College campus, the building is flanked by existing buildings on 3 sides and a carpark. The constraints of the site called for a structure that would fit into context architecturally, while creating a strong individual expression.
Oblique geometry allows the structure to merge with surrounding forms, while strong angles and lines create a striking effect.
