Queens Park Church to welcome courtyard extension
August 21 2015extend the A-listed Queens Park Baptist church by creating a new link building connecting the existing hall and sanctuary by raising a new roof structure over an internal courtyard.
As part of this work a new entrance pavilion will be built on Balvicar Drive which will offer direct access to this ‘slot’ space, taking the form of a free standing wall separated from the historic fabric by glazed screens.
This will improve access by equalising differences in level whilst creating a more welcoming environment for parishioners and visitors.
In their design statement CRGP noted: “We designed the space to focus on gaining as much natural light as possible, while still delivering a space which is ethereal. Light moves through this space and illuminates different areas depending on what time it is during the day. We wanted this space to feel special and uplifting.”
