Project Name:

St Matthew's Church, Belfast


Bryson Street

Architect / Designer: 

Kieran McCambridge / Aaron McGrath of McClean and Forte

Completion Date:




Located on the corner of Bryson Street on the Newtownards Road, St Matthew’s church was re-opened on the 1st of February 2009 after a twelve month restoration and refurbishment.

Overseen by McLean and Forte Architects ,a significant part of the project entailed the manufacture and installation of a full new floor by Armatile.

The detailed panel work of the aisles and altar were designed by the experienced liturgical architect Brian Quinn of Rooney and Mc Conville.   

Using a combination of matt and polished porcelain finishes to great effect the designs take inspiration from the original mosaic pieces on the altar, this interpretation of the design results in a  beautiful modern floor very much in keeping with the feel of the original design of the church.

Each section of the detailed panels and altar were manufactured and assembled off site by Armatile at their waterjet cutting facility in Armagh and fitted to specification by Armatile Contracts.
