Congregational Church, Oban

Shauna Cameron Architect Ltd

With a small (25) ageing congregation worshipping in cold damp, but still imposing space, Oban's oldest church needed major refurbishment inside and out. This classical hall church over a raised basement has been fully restored, the vestry renovated and the undercroft redesigned to give a useable hall, toilets, kitchen with a lift to the main floor. The turned stone balusters and steps of the perron forestair were repaired, the roof re-slated and insulated. Three cast iron and twelve, badly decayed zinc cames windows were skilfully restored. A warm welcoming church now has a large congregation and a well used building
