VCA Artists Workshop for Hatz Architects…

Taking a break from posting travel images, I captured this particular project for the very talented Steve Hatzellis of Melbourne based multi disciplinary Hatz Architects.

The following project summary is from the Hatz Architects page, and outlines the project a great deal more succinctly than could I..!

Summary

VCA Artists Workshop
Location: Melbourne, Australia
Type: Institutional Fitout
Size: 1100 sq. m.
Status: Completed July 2015

Client Brief

The VCA currently operates two workshop facilities – the School of Art workshop and the Performing Arts-Stagecraft Workshop. This project entails consolidation of the two workshops into one area enabling integrated facility incorporating resources and services across all disciplines.

HATZ Response

Our exterior scheme aims to harmonise with the existing heritage architecture by utilising the existing truss geometry to create contemporary geometries. We have used dynamic geometries to create visual directional movement into the campus and to be suggestive of a future gateway element. The main interior Construction Areas are conceived as public piazzas – an interior urbanism. Work is assembled in these urban lobbies and crafted in the manually intensive workshops.
