来自建筑师的描述。教堂位于瓦纳卡郊区的小岛上,小岛周围是新西兰南阿尔卑斯山的广阔全景。

这座建筑以有机的形式映射出了环绕着的群山。实心砌体墙自入口开始装饰着简单的石膏,墙体逐渐变宽以容纳会众,然后向内弯曲,并聚焦于带有祭坛的半圆形后殿。浮叶式的屋顶朝着祭坛方向向上倾斜,进一步突出了这个方向的重要性。

建筑内部自然采光,光线通过一条狭窄的带状玻璃天窗进入室内,带状天窗越往圣殿方向越宽,角度微妙地改变着,突出了祭坛。带状天窗使教徒们能够观赏到环绕的群山。这里的景观及其变化的氛围安静地呈现在人们面前,为教堂这一服务设施提供了鲜活的背景。

From the architect. The site is located in Wanaka set on a suburban island surrounded by a broad and immediate panorama of the NZ Southern Alps.

The building’s organic form alludes to the mountains that surround it. Solid walls of masonry dressed in simple plaster sweep from the entry, widening to embrace the congregation before curving inwards and focusing on the semi circular apse containing the altar. The floating leaf form of the roof inclined towards the altar rises skyward further emphasizing attention in this direction.

The interior is illuminated by natural lighting that enters through a narrow glazed clerestory ribbon that widens as it progresses towards the sanctuary subtly shifting angles to emphasise focus towards the altar. The ribbon windows offer the faithful a view of the surrounding mountains. The landscape and its changing moods are quietly present as a living backdrop to the service.
