Kericho Cathedral

John McAslan + Partners

Kericho Cathedral is located in South West Kenya, approximately 250 km from Nairobi. It lies within the Highlands, west of the Great Rift Valley, enjoying magnificent views across the tea plantations and surrounding hills. The Cathedral's great inclined roof will become a distinctive form in the rolling panorama of Kericho's hills and valleys. Strikingly crafted, the building's simple palette of materials honours the faith and frugality of this rural African context. The practice is committed to the inclusion of skilled artisan trades and the improvement of local skills. The scheme completes in Spring 2014.
