Simplicity, tranquillity and calm were the design qualities the nuns most strongly valued. The architects felt that an orthogonal plan would be most successful, providing restful vistas and axes, with a courtyard to act as the central focus. The church and chapel provide a more organic counterpoint to the orthogonal plan.

Using a delicate palette of materials and innovative structural solutions we have created a set of spaces that are both inspiring in their visual connections to the surrounding landscape, and simple in their practical details.

Taking full advantage of natural light and views, the monastery relates closely to the surrounding undulating landscape.

The brief required part of the monastery to be entirely private and other areas fully available and welcoming to the public.

Access to the building is from the east side and the views and sunshine are to the south. All shared areas therefore had to be positioned on the east side of the building, with service areas to the north side, leaving the west and south sides to enjoy uninterrupted privacy and views.
