Creating a place where youth can pursue their dreams in music, song and dance

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND

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%.
