About the project

Studio Four Specialist Projects were invited to submit competition designs for the complete re-build of St.Peters Church in Ropley, Hampshire which was subject to an extensive fire in 2014.

Option 1 was a more traditional re-build of the church form, but using modern materials internally, this allowed for larger spans and more internal flexibility. The additional accommodation required by the church would then be sited in a contemporary building built from traditional materials to reflect the existing church. This building was to be sited behind the existing church in order to not over-power it, but also framed a new public walkway through the site.

Option 2 created a new public space through the church itself and created a sheltered, but external courtyard. The church space itself then became orientated North – South as opposed to the traditional East – West. Additional accommodation was housed in a more contemporary building to the North of the existing Church footprint
