Victorian College of the Arts
The Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School is a select entry government school, providing an internationally recognised specialist program for training talented young dancers and musicians. Integral to this program is the provision of a high quality academic education that is also offered to other elite training organizations.
Williams Boag were engaged by the Education Department in October 2006 to design and document a new facility for the School in Miles Street Southbank.
The new 5460m2 VCASS facility occupying the whole of its 3,500m2 site over two floors, was completed in June 2009 and is among the most unique secondary school buildings in the world with its inner urban setting and specialist teaching facilities.
These include tertiary institution quality Dance Studios with sprung floors and acoustically designed Music Practice and Ensemble Rooms.
