IID won an invited competition to provide extended music facilities, drama studios and replacement photography provision in 2011.  The two buildings were completed in 11 months.


The school’s brief firstly required new drama facilities adjacent to the school’s award-winning Performing Arts Centre.  This brief was developed by IID and PLACE Landscape into the concept of an ‘Arts Village’, tied together with a new Sculpture Walk displaying the students’ work.  The new Studios building is comprised of two Drama Studios, a Photography Studio with mezzanine study area and a central Learning Resources Area which doubles as a Photography Gallery.
