The new chapel at St Andrew’s College overtly references its much-loved quake-ruined predecessor through the incorporation of numerous salvaged heritage elements. This integration is achieved with a rare appropriateness and thoroughgoing integrity. The new chapel is accessible to the wider community as well as the college of which it is the heart, and is exemplary, in a city still in recovery, in the way in which it responds to the needs of the present while acknowledging the legacy of the past.
