Unitarian Church
• Notte Street
• 1955-1958
• By Louis de Soissons, P. Hodges Robertson & Fraser
• Listed Grade II

Unitarian Church is a really small scale building of elegant form, depicted on the classical pediments and the slender, bronze spire. The rough human-made surfaces create a contrast to the beauty of the precinct’s surrounding nature, found on trees and flowers.
The corners of the building are widely clad in limestone ashlar with channelled rustication, the wide, recessed central panels thus created are rendered, each with a single high window with a segmental head, set in a slightly recessed surround. A narrow plat band of limestone links the window heads with the rusticated sections to each side.

Initially the idea of providing sites in the city city centre for churches was resisted, the new city plan had no mention of churches. However in 1951, a site in Notte Street was allocated for the Unitarian Church, which still operates in ourdays.
