Church and Community Building, East London

East London

We produced this design to provide a new church and community facilities for an existing church group based in an urban part of East London. The church are heavily involved in community outreach and undertake many different activities within the local neighbourhood. They had found that their current premises no longer meet the needs of the church in the 21st century.

This site on a busy high street offered many possibilities for a vibrant, inclusive and truly engaging new building. The building contains a wide range of complimentary uses:

  • Double height Worship Space for 200+ people
  • Multi-purpose Hall with catering facilities
  • Foyer and Café – giving a really active street presence
  • Meeting Rooms and Offices
  • Community space that could be used as a Nursery
  • 26 apartments on the upper floors, including 10% wheelchair homes
