The degree of architectural ambition here is highly unusual, producing a distinctive, original response to a particularly testing challenge in form-as-function.

A complex and ambitious composition has created spaces that have real serenity and gravitas. The slatted cedar soffits work well to unify the sequence of spaces both externally and internally. Great care has been taken with defining high level clerestory light, particularly around the wedge-shaped chapel.

With thought and consideration the architect leaves with us a building that stands scrutiny from all sides.
