Blyth Performing Arts Centre wins the New Zealand Architecture Medal

Blyth Performing Arts Centre

The twenty-eight winners of the annual New Zealand Architecture Awards were announced on Friday 30 October, with Blyth Performing Arts Centre taking the top award of the New Zealand Architecture Medal. Marshall Day Acoustics provided full acoustic design services on the project, working in close collaboration with the architect, Stevens Lawson Architects, from the outset. Our team is very proud of the comments from the judges, which included:

'Technical as well as architectural issues have been resolved masterfully; importantly, acoustic performance has been incorporated seamlessly into the building, and natural light admitted to great effect. On this project, client and architect reached for the sublime – and they got there.'

The above was reported on architecturenow.co.nz. Full article here.
