Our environment can enhance our capacity for artistic expression, and in conjunction with Kerstin Thompson Architects, we are proud to have created a truly inspirational space.
The former Victoria Police Mounted Branch stables, which date from 1912, have been transformed into world-class teaching and learning facilities for students of the University of Melbourne’s Faculty of Fine Arts and Music. The Stables feature a new visual arts wing with 170 studios and flexible exhibition spaces, while the former riding school has been converted into a 260-seat multipurpose arts wing for theatre, dance, music theatre and music performances.
Marshall Day was engaged as a core design team member to provide building acoustics for the whole refurbishment, and room acoustics and theatre design for the performing arts space.
