The Newman Hall is a commune designed by HCP for the Society of Jesus. The straight forward and simple form of this hostel reflects the austere and disciplined life of the Jesuit seminarians. The requirement was for a series of individual rooms, a dining hall, a chapel and a small office block. The chapel, a simple circular brick structure, is placed on the central axis of the encircled courtyard. Generous corridor areas serve the dual purpose of providing access and ritual ambulatory spaces. Two and three storied structures flanking the courtyard house the seminary rooms.
