The project comprises the reconfiguration and refurbishment of a former Victorian Methodist church into a generous open-plan co-working space.
The architectural interventions are inserted into the main double-height space like large scale pieces of furniture, subtly delineated from the original building fabric in a series of textured materials all rendered in white. Privacy is introduced for the mezzanine spaces by the means of a large patterned stained glass window and dramatic glazed hanging stair – a nod to the building’s past life as a church – allowing light to flow through the series of interlinked spaces.
