About Hannah Playhouse

The Hannah Playhouse was purpose-built between 1971-1973. Its distinctive design (of the ‘brutalist’ school) and signature roofline won James Beard and Company a New Zealand Institute of Architects National Award in 1978 and an Award for Enduring Architecture in 2006.

Design of the internal performance space was supervised by Raymond Boyce, creating a flexible space that can both serve and inspire the artists who work within it.

The name derives from the family name of Sheilah Winn, major patron of the construction project.
