Sydney Dance Company Studios - Arts and Culture

Dunn & Hillam Architects were engaged by Create NSW to design the new temporary home for the Sydney Dance Company whilst their facilities in Walsh Bay undergo transformation.

A detailed feasibility stage working closely with Create NSW and the Sydney Dance Company in finding the right building for the project. Dunn & Hillam Architects then designed, documented and managed the project through to completion.

The project involved the insertion of a complex program - with teaching, rehearsal and performance requirements - into an existing turn of the century warehouse in a central Sydney site. The design outcome is a series of light filled dance studios, teaching spaces and facilities that support the creative inspiration, technical precision, and public engagement work of Sydney Dance Company.
