Mere United Reformed Church is located in the centre of this rural town and whilst an attractive historic building, was not well suited to use by community groups. Studio Four therefore designed a new entrance, meeting room and associated facilities within the existing building to achieve this. The entrance doors were fitted into an existing (and adapted) stone window, with a new paved entrance; internally, a new mezzanine floor creates separate meeting spaces at ground and first floor with the upper level served by a platform lift. New lighting shows off the impressive interior space and flexibly-zoned heating makes it more comfortable to use year-round.
