Kilbarchan church conversion to deliver new homes
March 26 2019
Noah Developments have alighted on Kilbarchan West Church in Renfrewshire for their next project, with plans to convert the B-listed hall into 17 apartments.
JM Architects have been commissioned to undertake the remodeling which will entail removal of unsympathetic modern additions such as a boiler flue and a concrete car park access ramp.
This work will also see stained glass replaced with clear glass with the intention to rehouse the pieces within the local community and the installation of conservation style rooflights.
Internal alterations will necessitate removal of first floor galleries to enable the creation of new floor levels, retaining exposed stonework and timber detailing where practicable.
In a statement the architects wrote: “Due to the requirement to drop certain window cills and provide apartments with natural light and ventilation, window openings are required which would involve the alteration of the existing stained-glass window configurations. Where floor junctions may be visible behind window sections, spandrel panels to sections of the glazing
are proposed and efforts have been made to limit the number of these instances.”
Focal point of the Kilbarchan conservation area the church will be renovated in tandem with an adjacent hall, subject to a separate application to convert into a single home.
