Spire of Hope by Collin Conn Architects and Robert Jamison Architects

St. Anne's Cathedral Donegall Street, Belfast

This project was conceived by the client as a competition to complete the spire for the cathedral, which had been without one for over 100 years. The Spire, reaching 72 metres acts as a distinctive landmark across the city. The brushed stainless steel transforms its appearance subject to the prevailing weather conditions and the spire's integration within the heart of the building has been carefully detailed and considered such that it appears to float with almost no structural support.

Client: Dean Houston McKelvey, St. Anne's Cathedral
Contractor: Patton Group
Structural Engineer: Taylor and Boyd / Whitbybird
Contract Value: £800,000
Date of Completion: September 2007
