Huntingtower School - Performing Arts Centre 


Huntingtower school believes music and performing arts have lasting benefit for their students.

 It was clear that the design of a new Performing Arts Centre was important to the school.

They requested a facility with 750 seats and the ability to accommodate a 160-person choir and full orchestra – a high-quality space suitable for music, performance and school assembly.

Baldasso Cortese designed a dramatic, drum-shaped building with significant visual impact.  It sits in the front of the school and presents a strong and impressive public interface.  Interiors are well handled to accommodate important sight line and acoustic parameters with quality materials and finishes rounding out an excellent space.

I have to say that working with Baldasso Cortese has been an absolute dream. Working with Architects who listen, who actually try and determine what your vision really is and what is it that you really want to achieve with your building. We have had numerous meetings with so many different people and the key thing for me was you always listened
