We are privileged to continue to be working with the Benedictine Community of New Norcia. On our second project we were tasked with repurposing the building formerly known as the Marian Shrine into the Mission Cottages Interpretation Centre.
The Mission Cottages Interpretation Centre serves as both a memorial to and as an aid to the interpretation of the old New Norcia Mission Cottages, where for more than 100 years many Indigenous families had made their homes. The footprints of the old cottages can be seen directly adjacent to the building.
The project even involved Axiom’s extended family, engaging our Senior Designer Carl’s father, Steve – a master timber craftsmen to design and build a jarrah heptagon (7-sided) bench for visitors to the centre.
