NORD were commissioned to refurbish the interior and exterior of a Grade A Listed church in Glasgow. The primary issue is an existing 1970’s built side annex, which was in a poor state of repair and detracted from the character of the church.

Internally the limited budget is used strategically to re-line the existing spaces rather than entirely refurbish them. Consequently an Oak lining board, to reflect the character of the existing church interior, was added to the internal spaces as a discrete layer allowing the existing space to be clearly read against the new insertion.

Externally, a similar approach is adopted. Black cement cladding panels wrap the existing annex structure, blocking off all existing windows. Developing a strategy to define the entrance and circulation was paramount to the scheme and was addressed through a new illuminated entranceway, which clearly identified the primary access to the church.
