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.
The new congregations include a refurbished main and secondary hall, an outdoor public space and a common area. The main-entry to the congregation is through a double height semi-enclosed space, which is flooded with filtered natural light from timber battens, that cascade down the green wall. Linear LED Pendent lights also cascade down translating into the canopy structure, progressing the occupant North of the development. This leads to the outdoor area, dinning hall and new congregation hall. The space borrows formal elements from the existing, including cathedral ceiling and indirect lighting through skylights, creating a personal and sacred space.
