Wishaw church hall makes way for new flats
August 28 2019
A ruined C-listed church hall in Wishaw is to make way for six new-build flats in a new planning submission made to North Lanarkshire Council.
This will necessitate the demolition of the hall of Thornlie Parish Church on West Thornlie Street, including the formation of new access points in a stone boundary wall.
In a statement, CD Architects wrote: “The appearance of the building marries into the existing street elevation. It continues the language using the gables, holding to the vertical feel of the adjacent buildings and replicating the step back in elevation present at the corner church.
“The materials proposed consist of traditionally used in the area white render, with some stone features to tie the building with the adjacent church structure.”
The homes will employ passive energy design features including solar panels, rainwater harvesting and enhanced insulation.
