The Catholic Church of St. Mary & St. Philip Neri is a modest but pleasant brick building in Melbourne. Under the west gallery there was a confined timber lobby that created a visual and practical barrier for entry into the church building.

The project brief required the improvement of the entrance area and creation of a small meeting room and creché under the gallery area. This was achieved by removing the timber porch and adding new inner and outer frameless glass doors with simple manifestation to the glass. A simple timber frame and glass panels also creates a new meeting room area and place for a creché with minimal visual impact on the building internally or externally.

The picture below shows the minimal visual impact of the new screen. Shown right are detailed pictures of the new screen and the outer glass entrance doors.
