St Denys Church House
Client: St Denys Church
The vision is to create a communal building for the local church, fit for both the growing church and local community needs, which will last well into the foreseeable future.
This proposal is to demolish an existing poor condition property and erect a new purpose designed building, accommodating the parish office, three meeting rooms, toilet facilities, storage, a kitchen at ground floor and residential apartments at first floor level. The two flats will provide accommodation for a member of staff as well as allowing the second to provide a source of income to help with the upkeep of the new facility.
Our approach was to balance delivering a modern design that would still fit within the existing residential grain. Extensive consultation was sought with the congregation and neighbours to ensure the building met the church's needs while addressing as the concerns of the neighbourhood.
