EAA show faith in church conversion
Lee Boyd’s St Paul’s & St George’s Church has won building of the year at the Edinburgh Architectural Association Awards 2009.  

In their citation judges remarked: “This is an exemplary transformation of an important city church to meet the significant new needs of a growing congregation. It has an elegant and delicate porch extension, enhanced balcony seating and a comprehensive range of ancillary accommodation in the new side wing. A highly flexible solution stitched sensitively into the existing listed building. It is a complete project beautifully resolved in both its grand and minor details.”

The project was split into three distinct parts including the church interior, entrance pavilion and new build extension
