Bon Accord Free Church, Aberdeen.

Mackie Ramsay Taylor

The refurbishment of an existing listed place of worship, this project comprised both repairing the existing fabric of the building and sensitively altering it to provide both greater accessibility, a more welcoming arrival experience and a sanctuary space compatible with current day forms of worship. This involved works throughout the church, including re-slating, timber repairs, re-wiring, re-lighting, complete re- decoration and the provision of external ramps and a lift. The main architectural intervention was the creation of an informal arrival lobby between the street and the sanctuary, which also acts as a break-out space and informal meeting space.
