Rotorua Lakes High School Music Block

The brief was to create a statement piece that had the capability of withstanding a ram raid. A utilitarian form was chosen with a robust cladding to suit. The music building is a 200m2 specialist teaching space comprising practice rooms, recording studios, classroom space and separate office for the teacher to escape the noise. Internal rooms walls & ceilings are acoustically sound rated to prevent sound bleeding between the spaces. Bespoke horizontal bi-folding security doors automatically lift to form a canopy over the practice rooms to promote live outdoor music performances in the court yard for the school.
