Originally a weatherboard/stone construction Anglican church, the refurbishment of the Nunawading Church utilizes the existing stone and plays off of the existing building lines to create a new and refined architecture whilst respecting its origin. The Nunawading church depicts the conformation of the old and the new and introduces a new experience for its members.
New spaces include a refurbished main and secondary hall, an outdoor public space and a common area; located to take advantage of the northern and easterly sun.
In addition, a new church located on the northern end of the site has also been proposed. Designed to house the younger members of the church, this proposal challenges traditional cues of “church architecture”. Seemingly a vague timber box from the streetscape, the church becomes separated from its immediate context through external timber screening to enclose a personal and sacred space.
