Lights, camera, action for Santa Maria College Cultural Centre

Santa Maria College in Perth, Western Australia has announced its new state-of-the-art music, dance and drama facility. The first part of its visionary master plan, the Cultural Centre will set the stage for the incredible talents of the College’s students and give them a place to gather, learn and discover.

Our modern and beautifully simple competition-winning design for the Cultural Centre reflects its peaceful setting in the Perth suburb of Attadale. Celebrating the architectural heritage and landscaped character of the school, it sits seamlessly within the tree-lined streets and historic buildings of the College’s ‘Knowledge Walk’.

The centre will meet the current and future needs of the College by including:

  • A 650-seat auditorium with a mix of fixed and flexible seating
  • A multi-function/inter-disciplinary facility featuring music, drama and dance
  • A dance studio, blackbox theatre, orchestra and ensemble rooms and tuition rooms
  • A generous multi-use foyer and servery for College and community events
  • An integrated courtyard to provide outdoor spaces for learning, performing and gathering
  • Importantly, the design for the Cultural Centre sets the tone for the next stages of the master plan.

The Development Application is in progress with the local authority. Stay tuned for further updates.
