Preservation of this historical building was paramount for the St Joseph’s Parish. There was never a need to compete with this unique cluster of buildings; rather, to create a new inviting building wing that made its mark without dominating the elevation. Providing new amenity with the administration wing was a positive result; however the true measure of success is with the internal restoration of the existing halls. The successful outcome highlights the importance of preservation and showcasing of our heritage places.
