About the project

The scheme includes the construction of a new entrance concourse towards the front of the site linking the main church building and the Avenue Hall, and extensive internal refurbishment of the Avenue Hall.

The transparent concourse opens up the activities of the church to the street, and the use of modern materials and designs distinguishes the new building from the mixture of architectural styles of the present buildings.

The structure has been designed to minimise impact on the existing fabric either side by the use of centrally-supported steel bow-profile trusses supporting a curved roof; its asymmetric profile reflects the different building masses of the hall and church on each side.
