This project involved the deep repair, remodelling and conversion of a terrace of 17C timber framed terrace buildings, to reinstate the high-street shop fronts and create comfortable new private homes above. It was an exceptionally complex and sensitive process, but which resulted in a development that was shortlisted for a prestigious Surrey Heritage award following completion.
This was our second project working with the prestigious school Christ’s Hospital in Horsham, West Sussex, and the brief was to create a flexible and welcoming space that could be used for school events, seminars and day-to-day hospitality. It was designed with careful sensitivity to the site and historic character of the school campus, and focused on the building’s orientation and fabric to mediate the comfort and health of the internal environment, with a supplementary air-handling system to support high-occupancy events.
Welcome Church is an enthusiastic and popular congregation based in the heart of Woking’s town centre. It’s growing numbers and activities lead to their investment in a wholly new-build chapel to accommodate approximately 650/people at a time, and to the significant remodelling of the existing church-building to re-purpose it as a multi-function day-centre, offering accommodation and support for the church’s many ministries.
