The Cutaway fitout design unveiled

7 Aug 2022

The Cutaway will become one of Sydney’s premier cultural facilities and preferred venue for events and exhibitions after the NSW Government unveiled the concept design.

When the Cutaway opened in 2015 as a large concrete shell, it was always envisaged to include a future fitout. The Cutaway fitout concept design by FJMT Studio provides: 

  • A quality design approach to the character and identity of the space 
  • Maintains long term scale, flexibility and versatility of the Cutaway, and
  • Incorporates a strong response to Connecting with Country. 

The fitout will:

  • Maintain the current character of the space.
  • Resolve current limitations and restrictions on use, including lack of acoustic enclosures, on-site amenities, and smaller venue spaces.
  • Span over three levels and provide pre-function spaces, temporary gallery space and an educational space.

We will continue to update the community as plans for the Cutaway progress.
