render of new parish plans inside v2

Issues for Consideration

  • disconnection between lower and upper levels
  • limited accessibility/inclusivity
  • inadequate seating capacity for larger congregations
  • dated lighting and AV
  • distraction during Mass from the foyer
  • parish support functions housed in presbytery (to be demolished)

Opportunities

  • Improve across-site connections between Powderham and Devon Streets, the CBD and Cathedral precinct
  • Create interior and exterior spaces for pre and post-service community gatherings
  • more accessible Mission Centre
  • upgraded worship space
  • Improve connection with upper level functions
  • Engage with/activate pedestrian route through site
