Architecture: Sydney Grammar School Assembly Hall by PTW Architects

Posted by the editors on Friday, 13 January 2012

Architecture: Sydney Grammar School Assembly Hall by PTW Architects: “..a subterranean recital hall capable of seating 1500 people…placed within the heart of a school complex, the venue hosts concerts and assemblies as well as facilitating interior and exterior circulation. the natural bedrock was carved to form the internal walls which become the auditorium’s focal element. the space provides functional amenities with acoustical benefits for a variety of musical performances, and ideal sight lines from the seating arrangement which wraps the perimeter. generated high reverberation time is conducive to large scale 19th and 20th century orchestras and speech audibility is ideal for assemblies. the facility is capable of high quality video recording and projection..”  Impressive.  Rock on..
