Huntingtower school believes music and performing arts have lasting benefit for their students. It was clear that the design of a new Performing Arts Centre was important to the school.
Baldasso Cortese designed a dramatic, drum-shaped building with significant visual impact with a facility of 750 seats and the ability to accommodate a 160-person choir and full orchestra – a high-quality space suitable for music, performance and school assembly. Interiors are well handled to accommodate important sight line and acoustic parameters with quality materials and finishes rounding out an excellent space.
The selection of Mushroom 571 Tretford Tile in the theatre complemented the warmth of the stunning timber paneling used from Sculptform, while the deeper palette of Dark Chocolate provided a practical colour solution for the seated areas . Peacock 558 was used as a contrast colour to the Mushroom on stairs in the lobby of the Performing Arts Facility.
