duality of use and purpose; it is itself a sculpture
on the foreshore against the backdrop of the

theatre experience that harnesses the technology
of an international-standard performance venue,
while allowing the centre to function as a facility
for events like professional concerts and local
It is also used for rehearsal space and an
innovative mix of technical solutions and
e exterior has been designed as a jewel at
the heart of the harbour -- its crystalline molecular
structure and its form, similar to the structure of
a diamond, reflects light as one moves around it.
SORRENTO QUAY BOARDWALK, HILLARYS
Sorrento Quay Boardwalk is the culmination of
creative architectural vision, insightful urban
planning framework and a rigorous approach to
the procurement processes.
e harmonious mix has resulted in the "virtual
completion" of the Sorrento Quay development.
e project incorporates a new two-storey
retail space of 2950sqm gross, a new boardwalk,
and bridge infrastructure which connects to the
northern portion of the existing public beach.
e retail building acts as an architectural
"crescendo" for the entire complex, providing
spectacular views to the marina and public beach.
e boardwalk and bridge significantly
enhance the public access to the development
and the bridge allows the boat moorings to be
retained, ensuring a nautical flavour is preserved
for the public.
THE ALBANY ENTERTAINMENT CENTRE
is an innovative integration of entertainment,
performance and convention facilities, allowing
for flexible and adaptable performances.
