St Andrews Square

Winner - 2020 Architeam Awards - Unbuilt Architecture

Jury Citation
“As an example of architectural activism, the design by Moloney Architects to transform a cathedral in Ballarat into a place of worship for all, is visionary. Sold to developers in 2013, St Andrews Kirk has sat empty ever since. The design addresses the desperate need for a public space in the city, opening up both literally and figuratively to the community. It imagines a secular cathedral, interior voids created for trees and light, a place for picnics and celebrations, with a large parcel of land to the north retained for the developers. In its efforts to bridge both public and private interests, St Andrews Square is a captivating proposal.”
