St Andrew’s College Centennial Chapel

Entrant: Architectus

Badly damaged by the earthquakes, the original St Andrew’s Memorial Chapel has been replaced by an accomplished building that retains not just the memory of the original but also a great many artefacts skilfully integrated into its fabric. The new Memorial Chapel is a place of contemplation and worship, and of gathering, its feet steeped in history on the public side and its gaze facing the future, over the stream and playing fields to the college and its ever changing student role. Three strong elements – the brick Memorial wall, the folded glass wall, and the complex gable roof soaring above – come together to define a marvellous interior space that will serve and inspire many generations to come.
