About

This church and community centre provides social supports to people in Batemans Bay. The brief required the building be robust and demonstrate sustainable use of resources, both economically and environmentally. It was important that it be friendly, warm and inviting to people coming for social gatherings and family assistance. A series of strategies realise these aims through construction systems primarily comprised of engineered timber. This group of buildings simultaneously functions as a church, a social support service, a clothing shop and a community hall.

The community required a flexible building, that was finely crafted, but economic to build. The building received many awards including the Timber Design Awards, Public or Commercial Buildings Award in 2011
