dc.description.abstractHow could a community of Christians live within an urban setting and engage effectively with the lives of those around them? How might such an establishment be informed by the kind of Christian-living encouraged and influenced in the Bible? This project responds to the particular environment it is established in, meeting the needs of the wider community it serves. It provides a setting for Christian inhabitants to live and work within the same complex whilst demonstrating to society how a Christian would go about from day to day. The services and spaces generate a human thoroughfare and scene of interaction within the building. The architecture encourages interactions, giving the setting and atmosphere for one to feel at ease; a respite from the world outside. It draws people out of their day to day lives and into a sphere, a realm, where they can relax, contemplate, “people-watch”, or interact with their community. In regards to the Christians who live in community on this site, they are spatially arranged to be in a position to either invite others into their homes, or sometimes to withdraw and take time for themselves.en_NZ
