Built in 1993, the 700 seat Rixon Theatre is a key building to the Penrhos College campus. ZMH was engaged to assist with design alterations and general soft refurbishment of the theatre, main function lobby, kitchen and servery as well as various displays and AV integration throughout. The design brought new life into the space and accentuated the dramatic nature of the environment. Design features include bright red fabric for the seats and charcoal grey acoustic panelling contribute to the atmosphere within the theatre, whilst warm timber veneer was used in the lobby area. The main function lobby which is also used for rehearsal and general teaching saw the introduction of indirect LED lighting and large LCD screens to activate the space.
