Overview

Officially opened in December 2010, the Centre houses the captivating Princess Royal Theatre, a 620 seat auditorium comprising a large stage, full fly tower, orchestra pit lift, catwalks and cutting edge audio and visual systems.

The Centre also contains the Kalyenup Studio, a venue for events, and the Hanover Room on the second level, which provides spectacular views of the harbour.

The dynamic building form is dominated by four triangular diamond shaped structures made of double fold standing seam zinc cladded panelling and glass skylights. The walls form trapezoidal glass ribbons of varying heights below the soaring roof, with panelised walls spanning horizontally between the steel beams.

The Albany Entertainment Centre won several awards at the 2011 MBA Excellence in Construction Awards including Best Overall Construction Project, Best Regional Project, Best State Government Project, Best Public Use Building and Best Steel Construction Project.

The project also won the AIB Professional Excellence in Building High Commendation Award for Commercial Construction ($50-$100m) in the same year.
