Ashton Raggatt McDougal (ARM) architects completed the design of the Melbourne Recital Center.

Viewed at night the exterior of the building is a mesmerizing matrix of glowing tubes, hovering around the black box of the building, reminiscent of the tubing on the Arts Centre spire, but more graphic. More like an illusionistic painting, blurring two dimensional and three dimensional perception. Our design direction has been to draw on the shared traditions of spatial ambiguity that are imbedded in the histories of both architecture and the theatre.
