Eight and twelve storey steel blocks comprise this ballet school and student residence. The rain screen façade has square terracotta tubes set horizontally in bays, each bay formed from random lengths and colours of tube.

The terracotta tubes had to be accurately finished to locate within the steel framework. Not all the German material was able to be factory finished both efficiently and to the accuracy required. Bulmer was retained to cut the factory supplied terracotta to length and assemble the thousands of sections into labelled packages for delivery and assembly on-site in a detailed work sequence.
