Designed for the Parish of Waterloo in association with Manhattan Loft Corporation, this scheme replaces the undistinguished 1950s St Andrew's church (maintenance of which is beyond the means of its congregation) with a new building, which forms a focal point for the local community, attached to a residential development. The project places the church, faced in white render and translucent glazing - a beacon to the surrounding area - at the most prominent position on the site. A multi-purpose community hall is stacked above the new worship space, which opens onto a tranquil enclosed garden. The apartment building is clearly expressed as a separate entity, though carefully related to the church in terms of materials and scale. Living areas enjoy full-height glazing, while bedrooms are set back behind balconies. The project is an urban generator, harnessing market forces to benefit the wider local community.
