Cox Architecture’s work at Sydney Coliseum secures Interior Design Award
Cox Architecture's work at the Sydney Coliseum theatre has been named as a winner at the 2020 Australian Interior Design Awards - in the Public Design category.
Announced last week, the 2020 AIDA Jury advised that the "Sydney Coliseum Theatre is an exemplar public design project.
"It has a clear and concise gesture in the grand sculptural stair that connects all the interior spaces, embodying the idea of performance. This principal circulation space anticipates the joy, spectacle and magic of the theatre and the design elevates the experience. A true journey is to be had by patrons, as they move through this open area, which is flooded with natural light from the ribbon windows during the day and is more ambient at night. An element of drama is added to the experience via the contrasting darkness of the theatre."
Comment from the AIDA jury included unanimous agreement that "the relationship between interior design and the architectural fabric of the building is particularly successful, providing a sense of occasion through exceptional materiality and detailing. This is an outstanding civic project that creates a theatre experience accessible for everyone."
The $100 million development, part of the West HQ entertainment complex at Rooty Hill in western Sydney, marks the first major theatre development in Sydney in the current millennium.
Designed by Cox Architecture and opened in December, the venue consists of a 2000 seat proscenium arch theatre and flytower.
