Sacred Heart Cathedral of Kericho in Kenya

The Sacred Heart Cathedral of Kericho by John McAllen + Partners is located 250 km west of Nairobi, Kenya. It lies within the Highlands, close to the Rift Valley, enjoying magnificent views across 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 when it completes in 2015. Strikingly crafted, the building’s simple palette of materials honours the faith and frugality of this rural African context.
