Brisbane Boys College, QLD
The new College Hall at Brisbane Boys’ College locates a number of music teaching and rehearsal spaces on the lower levels. These spaces have been specifically designed to cater for a number of difficult instrument types and class sizes. The upper levels include a flexible multi purpose performance space, art gallery and meeting space. The performance space can accommodate up to 700 people for performances or assemblies and through the use of retractable seating, up to 300 people for a sit down function.
The existing College Hall at Brisbane Boys’ College Toowong campus no longer provided the resources required by the school as both a music teaching facility and performance and assembly space. Wilson Architects are working in association with Watpac, to provide a new facility on a difficult sloping site and with a challenging budget.
