Huntingtower School Performing Arts Centre

Ferco created a seating solution for the schools grand purpose-built Performing Arts Centre. Focused on design aesthetic and comfort the scheme lent itself to the FT10 with Wrimatic tablet and the ever popular Primera Beaufort.

Huntingtower School is an independent, co-educational school, located in the eastern Melbourne suburb of Mount Waverley, Victoria, Australia. The school currently caters for approximately 730 students from pre-prep to Year 12.

The new Performing Arts Centre offers an unprecedented environment for music, drama, learning and personal development.

The Arts Centre project started at the briefing and planning / feasibility stage and the ideal facilities for the college were assessed.  Theatre planning was then undertaken to develop the concept and functional operational parameters of the audience bowl and stage areas.

The Performing Arts Centre is designed to accommodate 750 people with associated facilities such as wings, loading dock, green room, change facilities, foyers and links to the existing drama centre.

The new centre is designed to showcase the schools most brilliant productions and presentations.

As the building emerged, seating in the beautifully presented theatre was an important consideration. Ferco’s design team worked alongside the school, architects and contractors to provide optimal capacity and a cohesive concept.

The FT10 Wrimatic is an executive auditorium and lecture seat with an integrated A3 Wrimatic tablet. The integrated A3 Wrimatic tablet is the most robust tablet on the market having being tested to a load bearing of 240 KG.

It stows neatly when not in use and operates in one continuous opening movement thanks to its unique triangular joint; a feature designed using advanced aeronautical and engineering technology.

With its clean lines and simple design, the Beaufort is the ideal choice for a stylish, contemporary aesthetic.

Having a small closed depth it can be incorporated into small spaces and tiers of 800mm depth without having to compromise on comfort or access.

Highly customisable with both wooden back and seat outers, and armrests, in addition to embroidery options.
