St. John the Evangelist new build Community Hall official opening
Sep 11, 2016
Our Community Hall for St. John the Evangelist, North Holmwood, was opened by the Bishop of Guildford, the Right Reverend Andrew Watson, on the 11th of September.
This is the culmination of a ten-year project to provide a new building with two separate linkable halls, kitchen and reception areas. Our brief has been to produce a distinctive sustainable building, in a form appropriate to the unique location, that wouldn’t compromise the special interest of the adjoining listed church.
Care was taken to develop a form that would not materially exceed the height of the smaller previous hall. This has been achieved by breaking the building down into a series of smaller pitched roof structures, grouped in such a way as to reduce the apparent scale of the structure.
