Red Earth Arts Centre
Peter Hunt Architects
The $54 m Karratha Arts and Community Precinct, located on the north eastern coast of Western Australia, includes an arts centre, cinema, an outdoor event space with an amphitheatre, as well as a new library and space for the local history office. It is the primary arts facility for over 600 km in any direction.
While awarding the precinct the WA Master Builder’s Association of WA’s Award for best regional project, Judge Charlie Baggetta described the venue as “a striking project, well designed, well constructed, and a display of excellence in workmanship”.
