Prendiville Catholic College

The design concept for this competition drew inspiration from the origins of theatres, the mountain slopes of ancient Greece where following the principles of pure circular geometric form these great ancient amphitheatres were born.  With over 1500m2 of floor space, the centre of this theatrical education complex houses a 250 seat theatre complete with fly tower, orchestra pit and full stage production facilities.  The outer circle of the space provides for the array of music, dance and drama teaching facilities.  The building sited on the high point of the schools campus overlooking playing fields provides a dramatic setting for the pure geometric façade solution which seeks to clearly express the differing uses of theatre and teaching space using a precast concrete building system complimented by face brickwork.
