Design ACB wins planning for Grade II church conversion

  • Comment

Design ACB has been granted planning permission to convert a church in the Winchester Conservation Area into apartments

The Hampshire-based practice plans to insert nine flats into the deconsecrated church, which is currently used as offices and for storage.

Conceived as ‘structurally independent pod-like insertions’ the apartments are accessed through a series of existing ground floor doorways with a full height atrium providing light and ventilation into the core of the building.

The upper levels are accessed from a central perforated copper-clad spiraling staircase with glazed bridge links across the atrium.
