CONTEMPORARY, CONFIDENT, BARE, & UNEXPECTED

The Dapto Anglican Church Auditorium reflects the changing requirements and opportunities of a contemporary church. The auditorium is not devoted solely to Sunday worship: it also supports a range of events seven days a week, catering to the wider local community, thus providing a hybrid of religious and community space.

The flow of visitors from the car park and two adjoining secondary buildings informed the building’s design and layout. The building is constructed with Austral’s precast concrete panels supporting steel trusses and a single pitch roof.

Award-winning architect Penny Fuller cheerfully acknowledges that the building structure is “basically like an industrial shed. The use of Austral’s precast concrete panels was an economical and efficient way of achieving the large spaces required on a tight budget.” The project won an Architecture Award for Public Architecture and was awarded the 2012 Blacket Prize for Regional Architecture, the jury commending it as “contemporary, confident, bare and unexpected.”
