Places of Worship
We have worked for a number of churches of different denominations. Schemes range from internal alterations to form an accessible WC to a change of use of a former ambulance station to form extensive church premises.
Church in retirement village near Walton-on-Thames
This church forms a central feature within a care village. The church was built in 1912 in a much earlier Gothic style, and is Grade II listed. We designed and obtained planning and Listed Building consent for a modest extension in an appropriate traditional architectural style to form an accessible WC, together with some internal re-ordering to enable the building to be better utilized.
Church in Chichester
This building, which extends to around 1,200m2, was originally built as an ambulance station, but had been vacant for some time. We prepared a design to re-utilize the building for use as a church and obtained planning consent for the change of use. The scheme included a large auditorium, meeting rooms, and offices. The site is now used by a growing, thriving and successful local church.
Church in Brighton
Well designed small schemes can make a significant difference to the way that buildings function. This project comprised the adaptation and re-use of internal storage space to form an accessible WC within the entrance area of a traditional church building, which is of significant benefit to the users of the building.
