The design approach for the Catholic Archdiocesan Hub is a humble and dignified interpretation of the brief and the site context. In optimising the existing site, the building functions and forms are articulated in synthesis with the land. The interplay of forms, land, and the mesh skin of the building simulates a “Cradle” protecting the people and creating an envelope which signifies God’s encompassing nature. The design also maximises natural light and ventilation as an approach towards sustainability.
