studioplusthree appointed for the REX Theatre

studioplusthree have been appointed to design an extension to the community-owned REX Theatre, in Charlton, Victoria. Built in the 1930's, the additions to this art-deco cinema will adapt the original cinema into a full live performance venue, providing a range of backstage and community facilities for this regional asset in rural Victoria. The REX is fully run and operated by volunteers from Charlton and the surrounding Buloke region - a working theatre celebrating the golden age of cinema.

Warships Exhibition opens

The new 'Action Stations' experience has opened at the Australian National Maritime Museum, commemorating 100 years of the Royal Australian Navy. It was opened by Minister for the Arts Mitch Fifield, the Chief of Navy Vice Admiral Tim Barrett and Gadigal Elder Chikka Madden.

studioplusthree were commissioned to design the new permanent exhibition, which is centred around a set of bespoke steel tables, home to a modular system developed to accommodate a constantly evolving set of physical and digital pieces. With an emphasis on the tactile and the physical, the exhibition seeks to invite the visitor behind the scenes of navy life.

The exhibition is situated within the new Warships Pavilion, designed by FJMT.
