The Dominic College Chapel shared the award for Public Architecture and was additionally honoured with the Colorbond Steel Award for excellence and the innovative use of steel in architectural design, impressing the jury with its "refined use of steel corrugated sheet cladding to create a robust and innovative envelope."
"Mount Wellington forms the altar backdrop of the building's second chapel, with its profile reflected in a dramatic glass wall. Sliding doors on the third and fourth chapels fold away for an intimate service in a landscaped amphitheatre or to support a service for 1000, using the adjacent courts as seating space and the chapel terrace as the altar.
The college chapel is a superb and uplifting building. Its asymmetry beautifully balances the playful informality of the young students with the traditions of a chapel, providing a contemporary space for spiritual education and worship."
