The Church Rooms
This project will become a weekend retreat in rural Suffolk for a young family based in London.
The existing building is a neglected church hall bordering the Helmingham Hall Estate. The brief is to create a home from home that creates a calm break from city life, with 4 bedrooms with an open plan living space for family dinners and time spent together. The red brick building is extended with a black metal clad pitched roof volume to mirror the simplistic form of the existing, with elegant glazed links between the forms creating views onto the natural woodland landscape around.
Planning has been granted and construction is due to begin shortly.
