Art's building to form part of a local charity's day centre facility

The facility, which replaces a single-storey storage building, has a bike workshop at ground level, a centre for visual and performing arts at first- floor level and offices above, along with archives and storage at all levels.

The buildings's facade aims to invigorate the courtyard space and establish contact with the main day centre building, which stands opposite, while maintaining privacy from the entrance to the north on Wentworth Street.

The facade, with its faceted plan form, screens out views from the north, using solid panels as shields but providing views to the south and west through large areas of glazing.

Internally flexibe spaces are created by inserting timber floors as continuous horizontal barriers between spaces for functions that need to be acoustically separated.
