New Visual and Performing Arts Complex at Brisbane school

The new Visual and Performing Arts Complex at Somerville House in Brisbane was a worthy celebration of the school’s centenary year.

The new Centenary Building, which was designed by architects DEM (Qld) Pty Ltd and constructed by Barclay Mowlem Construction Ltd, is a hybrid structure. It contains different levels for performing arts and music rehearsal, as well as classroom facilities establishing a new Middle School. 

At ground level, car parking and storage facilities are provided. The Level 4 Music School features two double-height orchestral rehearsal rooms that are designed to give high-quality acoustics and allow for the permanent set up of instruments.
