The Christian Community Church in Hounslow, south-west London, had an enviable yet tricky problem:- a very tight site and an expanding congregation.
EMJ Architects proposed to remove the existing roof, which is dated and dilapidated. Initial designs included an additional floor and a new roof on top of the existing building.
This proposal provides the church with a new, larger worship space at the first-floor level. In addition, substantial improvements to the church’s environmental performance due to improved insulation and daylighting provided by a new roof.
Other changes to the layout of the building include remodelling of the lobby to provide a warm and welcoming space. There is an uplifting entrance to the new worship space. In addition, remodelling the remainder of the ground floor to provide new offices, new kitchen facilities, new classrooms, and a secondary activities hall.
