St Christopher's Cathedral Precinct Now Complete

Hindmarsh is proud to have delivered the St Christopher's Cathedral Precinct in Manuka, ACT. 

The development of the precinct surrounding St Christopher’s Cathedral includes new archdiocesan offices, an independent retirement living residential complex and works to the associated public realm.

The residential buildings are made up of 44 apartments and comprise a mix of one, two and three-bedroom independent living units featuring large balconies arranged around a common courtyard. The office building provides accommodation for the archdiocesan administration, a bookshop and a parish hall with the two office wings separated by a three-level atrium space.

A private landscaped courtyard including a communal pavilion building is provided for the resident’s use, and a public cloister is a new urban space associated with the Cathedral and office building for use by parishioners and public.

The project was designed and built with due regard to the heritage significance of the St Christopher’s Cathedral precinct, including the form, height and external material colour of the Cathedral being reflected in the architectural treatment of the office building to visually connect the buildings. 

​Congratulations to the ACT team on the delivery of a great project.
