St Luke’s Church

Flat Bush, Auckland

The new church, situated on a greenfield site in Flat Bush next to Sancta Maria School, was built for the St Lukes Parish Community. The church can accommodate a congregation of up to 900 people.

The driving concept of the design is an accentuation of the traditional central axis found in churches. The processional route begins from the carpark, heightened on approach in the symmetry of the front façade, before continuing through the entrance foyer into the church hall.

The internal arrangement is reflected in the exterior shape in the form of a high central nave with lower cloister styled sections off to the side. These sections pull away from the central nave like nesting tables.
