‘The Forum’ is a simple covered meeting area adjacent the heritage registered St Joseph’s Cathedral.  The award winning project is simple in it’s form as to not contest with the cathedral adjacent. The aim of the design was to create a large covered area with minimal visual impact on the elegance of the Gothic inspired, sandstone Cathedral.


The Covered Meeting Area provides an overflow congregation space for the Cathedral.  The structure provides a complimentary link between the Parish Centre and the Cathedral
