This concert hall is part of a large commercial development that was jointly funded by the AMP Society and the City of Sydney.
Seating 1,250 people, it is suitable for performance of recitals, chamber music and small scale orchestral and choral works and provided an ideal acoustic environment. The hall also had a variable acoustic system to make the auditorium suitable for conferences and annual general meetings.
The hall draws upon 19th century typology with its ‘shoebox’ form and two u-shaped galleries, which gave a strong sense of occasion to events held in the space.
The entrances to the building could be seen down narrow laneways and are marked by brightly-lit tower elements. A white Carrara marble stair connected three levels of lobbies leading to the auditorium.
