Red Earth Arts Precinct
In September 2016, after a competitive tender process, we were awarded the contract to deliver the Red Earth Arts Precinct (Karratha Arts and Community Precinct). Prior to this we had been engaged by the City of Karratha to undertake a buildability study of the proposed design.
The precinct provides a contemporary performing arts centre and community hub, creating a civic heart at the entrance to the city centre and contributing to Karratha’s viability and vitality.
The precinct comprises of the following key components:
- 450 seat theatre (performing arts);
- Entry foyer;
- Outdoor event space (amphitheatre);
- Staff administration office accommodation;
- Library (incorporating local history); and
- Roof top terrace.
The complex interfaces between the structure, roof and façade, coupled with the fact that works were undertaken in a cyclone region, made this an extremely challenging project.
