TE ORO – MUSIC AND ARTS CENTRE FOR YOUTH
Te Oro is a 1,485 square-metre music and arts facility for young people from the ethnically diverse communities of Glen Innes and Panmure.
They can come together in this multi-purpose space to perform and practise the arts; express their creativity and talents; and celebrate their cultures.
All spaces are connected in a simple loop of circulation that visually connects users with as many activities as possible.
The facility includes hang-out and ‘kai’ spaces, a 200-seat performance space – itself becoming a stage for outdoor performances, a dance studio, digital editing suite, jewellery workshop, and art classrooms.
This project also has a strong environmental agenda, with the upper roof surface covered in 250 PV panels, which reduce electrical consumption by 50%.
RLB provided cost management and quantity surveying services.
