Saint Patrick’s Presbytery – Seismic Upgrade + Refurbishment

The upgrade and refurbishment of Saint Patrick’s Presbytery is as serene as a prayer. Home to cathedral priests since 1888, this category 1 heritage-listed building presented a puzzle that the architects worked through methodically. Lowered ceilings from the 1970s were redesigned to admit light and space, the kitchen was returned to its original location to reconnect with a courtyard, and the upstairs was reorganised to create four bedrooms, ample study spaces, and generous bathrooms. This project is evidence that even modest architectural solutions can be the answer to someone’s prayers.
