The Stables, Victorian College of the Arts
Kerstin Thompson Architects
The former Victoria Police Mounted Branch stables, which date from 1912, ('The Stables') have been transformed into world-class teaching and learning facilities for students of the University of Melbourne’s Faculty of Fine Arts and Music. The result is a delight for the senses and bursting with potential for creative minds to explore its possibilities.
The Stables feature a new visual arts wing with 170 studios and flexible exhibition spaces, while the former riding school has been converted into a 260-seat multipurpose arts wing for theatre, dance, music theatre and music performances. Marshall Day Entertech was engaged as a core design team member to provide theatre design services for the performance space.
