Joondalup Performing Arts & Cultural Facility to be designed by ARM Architecture

ARM Architecture has been selected as the winner of an international competition for the Joondalup Performing Arts & Cultural Facility in Perth, Western Australia. The concept was also picked as the winner of the People’s Choice Award as part of the wider competition.

The project will see an 850-seat lyric theatre, a 200-seat black box/studio space, a gallery, and functional, community and performance spaces constructed in Joondalup. ARM Architecture’s concept is derived from a large limestone block, inspired by the location of the site on the Yanchep-Joondalup chain over Tamala limestone.

This particular material speaks to the significance of the building form and also its permeability, with users invited to move between spaces in order to enjoy the full experience of the new programme. Entering from Central Park, visitors will move through an open piazza to a cloistered entry plaza populated with limestone pinnacles, then into a foyer and a water space beyond.

WAN’s Business Information Service published details of this competition in May 2013.
