To commemorate its 40th anniversary, the Nexus Designs Interiors team transformed the interior of Toorak College Chapel into a 21st century space for reflection and celebration.
Constructed in 1975, the Toorak College Chapel was built with the benevolent support of the School’s dedicated Collegians and is a special place on the campus described as containing the “spirit of the school”.
By combining oak timber floors and brick walls with a fresh white paint finish, the Nexus Designs Interiors team immediately transformed the existing dark interior into a light-filled, ethereal space.
The simplicity and repetition of the Billiani Doll chairs in bleached beech, supplied by Design Nation, further enhances the overall ambience of the Chapel by moving away from the traditional idea of pew seating. These well-designed Italian chairs provide a flexibility not possible with church pews and allow the school to reconfigure the space as required. Some Billiani Doll Lounge chairs are also featured, together with the Zeitraum Apu side tables. The brilliant blue carpet runner pays homage to the school colour and leads to the altar and wall hanging ensuring that the visitor always identifies with the true purpose of the chapel.
