St Mary’s Church

The Gillard Group’s lighting design for this church won an international Heritage Lighting Award.

St Mary’s church dominates its surrounds, is heritage listed and was built in the Gothic revival style.

The building has beautiful stonework, carvings and joinery and a very fine marble High Altar, side altars and pulpit.

Heritage constraints drove many creative solutions including novel Christian-inspired luminaires and within the bell tower.

Our solution creates a spiritual ambience, a night icon and low maintenance outcomes.

The church was professionally photographed by Scott Burrows.
