Church & Community Project
Space Division was one of six architects invited from around Australasia to participate in a design competition for a proposed new facility in Central Auckland. The project centered on designing a ‘hub’ that was large enough to accommodate a church, chapel, child care, offices, cafe and community facilities. In a similar vein to the town square of old, we arranged the various functions around central courtyard where the community can converge and meet. Spaces open into and onto each other, reinforcing that informal interaction.
