The Australian Institute of Music is very excited to announce a whole raft of new upgrades coming to the Sydney Campus in early 2019!
Throughout the design process we have worked to put the students at its core; from creating spaces that encourage meaningful collaboration, innovation and creativity among students to other areas that promote spaces for quiet reflection and focus on academic study.
Our goal with these renovations, and in particular with Building B, Level 3 is to create a new campus ‘heart’, one where every member of the AIM community has a sense of belonging and one that fuels your inspiration.
Some of the key features of the new renovations in Stage One (to be completed over the Christmas period);
Building B, Level 3
- All existing rooms will be demolished apart from JPH and the Space. The area will be turned into a new open and collaborative space with natural lighting, including a new café and performance area.
You can find a concept video of what this area will look like below.
Building A, Level 5
- Will be renovated and soundproofed to give rise to a new dance space, two new movement areas and a graduate chillout zone. In addition, the two theatres will be re-soundproofed to ensure separation from each other and new theatre seating will be installed in both.
Building A, Level 1
- The composition production suites will be integrated with Audio on Level 1, turning four studios into a combined Audio/Production space. The offices will be demolished and be replaced by two brand new production suites.
In terms of access, the completion will be staggered across the end of January with the final handover in February 2019. This means we should have access to Building A, Level 5 before the start of SP1 as well as access to the Audio and Production suites on Level 1.
The other areas we will have staggered access as they are completed.
While we will be releasing more details in the next few weeks as well as giving regular progress updates, we will be working closely with campus management to ensure the construction process runs smoothly with as limited disruption to everyday activities as possible. Unfortunately, during the Christmas period, the Sydney campus will have limited access to practice rooms due to the ongoing nature of the construction, however as soon as they come back online we will put out announcements.
Proposed Construction Dates:
Stage 1: 10th Dec – 16th Feb
Stage 2: April (more detail to come)
