About the project
Holy Saviour Church in Bitterne had occupied a ‘split site’ for many years with halls and other community spaces remote from the main church, which sits in the heart of Bitterne. This project therefore sought to bring these spaces together onto one site, with new modern facilities and flexible use throughout – including re-ordering the main worship space in the Listed church building.
Phase 1 comprised a new two-storey extension to provide halls, meeting rooms, kitchen and toilet facilities. A glazed link with a feature staircase and ‘bridge’ links to the main church; phase 2 will form a new mezzanine floor across the back of the church which connects with the upper floor of the extension.
