Station Arts Centre
The Station Arts Centre is a performing arts centre, restaurant, and gallery located in the repurposed Train Station in Rosthern, Saskatchewan. aodbt worked in collaboration with the Station Arts Centre to provide fundraising assistance and design services for the renovation and addition of the facility. The project team was able to work within a limited budget and decided early to focus on creating a high quality theatre space and using the existing areas for support spaces. The design team developed a layout that transformed the facility into a multi-use amenity for the community. The layout provided opportunity to host a variety of events such as dinner theatres, conferences, art openings, and auction sales; without sacrificing the flow for the audience and the cast members. The renovation and addition, completed in 2009, provided additional seating, back of house space, and an expanded food services area.
