The Centre retained the services of Abbott Brown Architects to assist in the redesign of the south pavilion, which housed the library for 57 years. The design has prioritized environmental stewardship and accessibility, with features like solar panels, increased insulation, and energy efficient retrofits to all systems to reduce the carbon footprint of the building. It also includes new rehearsal and arts education spaces, a cultural pavilion and interpretive area, and a street level entrance, which, along with other features, will make the space more accessible and welcoming.

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
