This was an exciting, but challenging, project. Having become redundant due to a recent parish union, the historic remnants of the church buildings were to be replaced with a new multi-functional community facility.
We incorporated the granite into a central spine wall. In contrast to the rectilinear halls on one side, the open entrance side is split into curved timber forms. These three segments achieve the concept of enfolding and welcoming arms; both in terms of the quality of internal space, but also as an element of visual intrigue and interest on the main street of this city suburb.
