Sensitive and thoughtful consideration was required, both internally and externally, for the building to truly meet the needs of the staff and students and complement the existing historical buildings. The pavilion integrates with the topography of its site and seamlessly sits within the mature trees. The building exudes a beautiful stillness, calmness and tranquility, befitting a place of multi-faith worship and rest.
The project commenced in the school holidays but once the students returned, stringent procedures were set and abided by with strict safety policies in place.
In keeping with the setting, the new building highlights the aesthetics of the adjacent buildings, with red facing brickwork and natural stone coursing.
As part of the design phase of the pavilion and multi-faith room, extensive research was conducted on the principles and rituals of each faith. This was respectfully reflected in the final designs. To ensure safeguarding, a clever layout was developed to provide the three entrances necessary to meet the uses of the building without space being compromised.
