Auckland City Iconic Church

Auckland CBD

In 1993 Salmond Architects was commissioned to prepare a Conservation Plan for Auckland City’s main Anglican church, St Matthew in-the-City, at the junction of Wellesley and Hobson Streets. ased on the recommendations and policies embodied in that report, the practice undertook the specification and management of major exterior refurbishment, which included extensive stonework repairs, a new slate roof and the removal, re-leading and reinstatement of all the windows (except for the stained glass to east and west ends). This work involved exacting manual draughting work to illustrate and locate all the existing stonework and architectural detailing. Several years later we were again engaged to oversee re-wiring of the church – a major job, which was followed by installation of new interior lighting, which received an international lighting award. The success of these projects established a lasting working relationship between St Matthews Parish and Salmond Reed Architects, which has, more recently, been consolidated by our management of the installation of a new Willis pipe organ in the original purpose- built organ loft and our completion of the much acclaimed restoration of St Thomas’ Chapel within the south transept of the church. Work continues on other areas of the Church and its surrounds.
