St Andrews College Centennial Chapel Christchurch by Architectus

Designed by Architectus, St Andrew’s College Centennial Chapel is part of a new generation of civic buildings emerging from the earthquake-damaged Christchurch. It replaces its arts and crafts predecessor, but thanks to some careful salvage and reuse, it wonderfully translates the principles of old religious dogmas into future-forward physical spaces.
