The bonds of time - All Saints Church
Designed by Richard Toy and built in 1957, the All Saints Church on Ponsonby Road in Auckland has been rewarded with two architecture awards – one in the year it was completed (NZIA Building of the Year Award 1957) and one in its year of restoration.
The design and restoration project was completed by Lizzi Whaley, a parishioner at the church for 25 years whose familiarity with the church and its parishioners was key to ensuring the project kept true to the church.
Exterior timber soffits were finished in Resene Waterborne Woodsman tinted to Resene Natural (warm timber) with Resene Double Napa (toasted brown) on columns, fascia and lower windows complemented by Resene Quarter Napa (greyed neutral) around stained glass windows. The entry box was subtly accented in Resene Masala (murky grey brown) to complete the exterior neutral look.
A sympathetic restoration, the All Saints Church is living through the second half of its first century in style.
