Unique purpose

Sacred Space Architecture Reimagined

Whether you are looking to undertake a new design or a renovation that perfectly complements the original structure’s heritage and character, we make sure all spiritual aspects of religious architecture are tastefully included in the design. Because spiritual structures are unique in their purpose, they should be designed as such. At dion seminara architecture, we can push the boundaries of sacred space architecture design, or we can focus on a more traditional look. The choice is yours.


Renovation and restoration

Want to update the look of your place of worship? We can restore older religious structures to their former glory. Our architectural design solutions build on what your sacred space already has, and our aim is always to enhance your place of worship both inside and out while ensuring its historical charm remains intact.


Evoke emotions

The right kind of spiritual spaces architecture can evoke certain emotions, and it’s our job to create a design that pulls off the right look and feel to suit your sacred and holy place. The outside should be welcoming while the interior should feel like a divine sanctuary.


New design

When designing a new piece of religious architecture, a lot of flexibility and creativity is available to you. We can work with you to come up with the perfect balance between old traditions and rituals and contemporary design elements, creating a brand-new spiritual space that’s modern and fits seamlessly into the 21st century.

Bulimba renovation

Comprehensive Design Service

One of our most prized sacred architecture renovations that we had the pleasure of being involved with was the Saints Peter & Paul Church in Bulimba. A fundamental shift in how liturgies were held in the church lead to the need for architectural rearrangement. The challenge of this design involved moving the ambo and alter into the centre of the space while still maintaining seating capacity. The external brickwork on this 90-year-old building was also carefully restored along with the artwork and original colour scheme. Upon completion, we were able to achieve a warm, communal feel.

This example clearly shows that traditional architecture can be updated and modernised without tarnishing the old site, its history or its sacredness in any way. So, if your place of worship could do with a renovation like this one without disrespecting the traditional design, don’t hesitate to contact our team to get started.
