With an expanding congregation, this scheme allows growth of up to extra 200 people by providing new worship space, community meeting rooms, flexible function space and offices for the International Presbyterian Church. An 80-seat Edwardian grade II listed chapel is cradled within the new scheme. Traditional church architecture offered a key reference point: the roof is pleated and folded to create a finer grained roofscape. As it rises, the folds peak in an abstracted spire, signalling the building’s ecclesiastical function and civic presence. Despite a limited budget, the creative use of commonplace components has elevated the project.
