Latrobe Performing Arts Centre
Client: Latrobe City Council
A state-of-the-art performing arts centre expands programming horizons for the Gippsland region
The $30M Latrobe Creative Precinct will deliver a state-of-the-art performing arts centre to energise the arts in Gippsland for generations to come. Supported by all levels of government, it will rise on land adjacent to the Traralgon Service Centre and Library, unlocking a new corridor of opportunity for touring artists and underpinning the development of a wider creative precinct.
Comprising a 750 seat multipurpose auditorium and a 200 seat studio theatre, the new performing arts centre will amplify the number and variety of performances available to Gippsland arts patrons. Augmented by outdoor event spaces and integration with the existing Library and Service Centre, as well as the repurposing of the existing Latrobe Performing Arts Centre building as a centre for creative industry training and vocational courses, the new complex will drive the growth and sustainability of Latrobe City’s creative economy.
Meeting spaces, a production kitchen, bar and café will work to activate the Latrobe Creative Precinct. The Maytrix Group is working with project architects Jackson Architecture and Katsieris Origami to optimise commercial outcomes for the facility.
Successful operation of the food and beverage and catering facilities is critical to commercial outcomes. The Maytrix Group will liase with the project design team to resolve catering and back of house areas to ensure the final layout is functionally effective. The design of the commercial kitchen, including equipment schedules and services will be informed, and Maytrix will also advise on equipment and services requirements for the Bar and Café areas.
