architecture matters p/l

Our Lady’s Parish Office & Chapel, Craigieburn With rapid population growth in the northern suburb of Craigieburn, Our Lady's Parish needed to move the parish administration out of the increasingly crowded Presbytery. Architecture Matters were engaged to design an new dedicated Administration Building and an adjoining Chapel, that would attach to the existing church building whilst not detracting from the grandeur. The success of this project was in that the new building was empathetic to the existing building in its detailing whilst also being kept at a scale that sits snugly into the existing built environment. The contrasting finish and form of the Chapel acts as a beacon as befits its 24-hour devotional role.
