Inspired by the carvings of the Buddha and Bodhisattvas in the Longmen Grottoes, this sacred space is where Eastern arts are expressed in Western architecture. The main facade separates the temple from the business of Riccarton Road, creating a space of repose within. Natural and raw materials abound - wood, stone, water - reflecting the Buddhist practice of cherishing resources and simplicity. The temple’s Buddha sits in silent dialogue with the Port Hills and can be seen keeping vigil over Mandeville Street. Minimalist in architecture, simple in materials, serene in the atmosphere.
