St James’ Church – Clitheroe

30 Sep 17

We were invited by St James’ to develop some striking and innovative ideas on the back of our previous roles on the award-winning black box theatre in Kendal. The brief was to tie in with the existing church hall and provide flexible and innovative space alongside the church whilst resolving some of the circulation and acoustic issues within the hall.

Using 3D models, we developed an exciting and innovative concept connecting the hall to the old churchyard through a series of laminated timber frames that twisted as they sank into the ground connecting the earth to the sky, both physically and metaphorically.
