conservation architects

Following a competition, d-on architects were commissioned to build a new parish centre, adjacent to the existing listed church, to accomodate a range of facilities. The scale of the building is reduced by breaking it down into block, each in proportion to its' surrounding landscape and buildings. A spacious roof glazed core area links the blocks ans the various activities. Materials remain sympathetic and respectful to the locale. Stone matching that of the church is used on a number of external walls, and the view from the first floor towards the church is across a green roof planted with alpines.
