Having just completed the disabled access scheme to the worship area, the client asked us remodelling the whole site.
The brief was to increase the sense of welcome, by remodel the building to accommodate the clients new needs and on going activities.
The philosophy of the design was to remove the current historic defensive and rigid configuration, indicative of its time, and to create a more immediate visual connect from the outside in and inside out. This was achieved by opening up the frontage, replacing solid walls with transparent glazing, doors and windows internally and externally and introducing more natural light throughout, particularly from above to illuminate the interior and sense of openness and welcome all the way through to the rear of the building.
We are a traditional practice, established since 1940 and presently based in East London. We are extremely passionate for delivering high-quality solutions to our clients from small building extensions to new buildings.
