Versatile Curves

The Click-on Batten system gives designers true freedom when it comes to designing curves in walls, ceilings or facades, and West Gippsland Arts Centre is no exception. Interior bulkheads are softened by sweeping curves lined in White Oak timber battens, utilising the specially designed curving track of the Click-on Batten system.

Battens ending on angles create a balanced aesthetic, the straight lines of the angles and linear textures contrasting the curves of the walls. The classic grain of the White Oak brightens the room and adds a sense of dynamism with the slight variations in colour.

Auditorium Wall Linings

The huge 760 seat auditorium within the centre is lined with the same White Oak timber form the rest of the project, but this time in our Tongue & Groove Cladding system. Our system gives the classic timber cladding look along the walls of the auditorium, reflecting sound and assisting in the desired acoustic scenario of the design. Click-on Battens in varying profiles were installed with a minimal spacing on the back wall to further absorb sound.

Integrated Lighting

The adaptability and modular design of our systems allows for services such as lighting and sprinklers to be integrated seamlessly. In the West Gippsland Arts Centre, lights are integrated into the theatre walls and also the soffit above the stairs. This feature provides a unique look, with light radiating out from behind the panels of cladding in the theatre.

Our role as passionate collaborators in the design process allows us to help architects specify unique features like this into their designs and remain confident of the end result.
