The Blyth Performing Arts Centre, Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand
Client: Iona College
Services: Cost Management & Quantity Surveying
The graceful and elegant Blyth Performing Arts centre is an asymmetrical, sculpted building providing a 400-seat concert chamber and assembly hall on the grounds of Iona College.
The building provides finely-tuned acoustics throughout, and its form is a subtle nod to musical instruments with its sinuous curves and angled planes.
The building’s innovative interior creates an exciting space for a range of musical and theatrical performances, while high windows and an open glass wall bring in natural light and frame views to the landscape outside.
RLB provided cost management and quantity surveying services.
