We are excited to announce that the new Diocesan School for Girls Performing Arts Centre has reached completion! Congratulations to all of our project partners!
The Performing Arts facility was constructed in two stages; Stage 1 comprised the Music and Drama School, including teaching and practice facilities for music, drama, and dance, and a recording studio; The 1,000-seat Auditorium, foyer and support facilities formed Stage 2.
The Auditorium was designed to host a wide range of activities, including drama performances, concerts, assemblies, and amplified shows. We worked closely with the architects to integrate the acoustic requirements into the design and achieve an intimate auditorium with excellent acoustics.
As part of the design process, we presented an auralisation of the proposed design to representatives of the school's various departments. The purpose of the auralisation demonstration was to provide an experience of the proposed design to the school and to evaluate its suitability for the range of anticipated uses. This allowed users to be involved in the design and discuss the requirements for different departments.
