church architecture - extension design

Bluntisham Baptist Church is a thriving rural Baptist Church however the existing listed building did not have facilities adequate to support the busy church life and this project looked to address this. The existing church hall was refurbished, including a new kitchen, with the addition of new meeting rooms & store.

A new glazed extension, incorporating an entrance hall, new toilets and an office was also constructed. The design of the extension provides a degree of continuity with the form of the existing building, as well as in the choice of brick. A contrast with the existing has also been created through the use of aluminium framed glazing.

The new entrance hall has provided a bright, open space, creating a more welcoming entrance to the building. A modern zinc roof reflects the form & colour of the existing slate roof while providing a crisp modern feel.
