Theis + Khan wins planning for church-led housing scheme in Watford

  • Comment

Theis + Khan has been given the go-ahead for a church and housing scheme in Watford

The development features a church and community centre alongside nine three-storey houses.

The 2,370m² scheme will redevelop the 1970s St Thomas’ United Reformed Church in the Nascot conservation area, which is currently considered ‘no longer fit for purpose’.

The church building, which will be clad in ceramic tiles, references ‘religious scrolls and

Watford’s history as a paper-making centre’.

According to the practice, which was shortlisted for the Stirling Prize in 2010, the ‘scrolling’ church walls will wrap around the main worship space rising up towards a spire-like point creating a landmark on the street.

The houses will be sold to finance the church building project. These 180m² four-bedroom homes will be clad in London stock brick.
