Completed in 1967, this RAIA award-winning Southern Highlands performance centre stands the test of time.
Early Cottier Clubbe Hall, a multi-purpose performance centre at Frensham School in the NSW southern highlands, was Keith Cottier’s first significant project for the practice. He designed it in 1964 aged just 26 – a year before becoming a partner – and the project helped establish his reputation as a young architect of great talent.
Award-winning design Stained timberwork, face brickwork and exposed off-form reinforced concrete express Cottier’s commitment to the Sydney School of Architecture’s belief in the honest expression of materials. In 1967, Clubbe Hall was awarded the prestigious Royal Australian Institute of Architects (RAIA) NSW Blacket Award for a Building of Outstanding Merit.
A hall of many uses Today, Clubbe Hall is used for Frensham School’s drama and music classes, assemblies and performances. It is also a venue for Southern Highlands music festivals and touring theatre companies such as Musica Viva.
