State Theatre Western Australia
The building volumes are clearly articulated on the site. The theatres are stacked vertically and located centrally, freeing up space on the site for a large courtyard: an urban oasis and outdoor event space. Theatre foyers are located on the perimeter of the site: low transparent volumes that reinstate the urban scale of the surrounding streets and celebrate the activity within.

This project has evolved the building type, the small weekender, by answering a simple question – how does one go into a forest and use the forms of the ecology to build a house?
The project is a small cabin in Victoria’s Central Highlands. The clients are medical practitioners/ academics with a daughter attending university.
