This building was a joint initiative between the Uniting and Anglican Churches to provide a single place of worship that did not separate the differing faiths, but rather fused them together.  This dynamic and open minded attitude was a great inspiration from which to draw ideas when designing the building.  Fluid architectural lines, bold blade walls and a mixture of natural and fabricated elements were utilised to create an aesthetic quality that is both visually appealing and provides a subtle statement that is in keeping with the Church’s attitude.


Motus incorporated passive solar design to achieve a better internal environment. Natural light is diffused as it penetrates deep into the auditorium and community hall, while cross ventilation, high volume spaces and exposed timber beams contribute to an impressive internal volume.
