The New Opera House has 3 main parts. First the 'Front of House': the public areas located in the building’s western section. These include the main foyer, and 2 auditoriums. The foyer is a grand, open room with a variety of lighting conditions and views to the surroundings. This space is characterised by simple use of materials and minimal details. Secondly the ”Back of House”: these are the production areas of the building with workshops, storage areas, rehearsal rooms etc. The architecture is functionally appropriate, the exterior façade is composed of metal panels. Last part is the Roofscape: describes the building’s monumental character. The horizontal and sloping plane of the roof provides the opera with an unusually dramatic expression, quite different from the surrounding buildings. Clad in white stone, and it’s details will provide a holistic and symbolic character to the building while also allowing for a variety of experiences as one moves past it.
