The congregation of St. Silas Episcopal Church has received Planning and Listed Building Consent to replace an existing Victorian Church hall attached to their Grade B Listed church with a new two storey hall and office extension designed by McLean Architects.
This proposal provides new accommodation specifically designed to meet the requirements of this active congregation within Glasgow’s West End for the 21st Century, paying respect and integrating with the existing Grade B listed Victorian church but at the same time creating a welcoming individual building relevant for the expression of modern worship within the local community.
McLean Architects has proposed a limited palette of quality materials comprising of natural sandstone, polymer render finish and zinc cladding panels to walls with a standing seam zinc roof.
A new double height entrance foyer space will house a decorative stained glass rose window and stone surround from the existing church hall.
Stonework from the existing hall will also be reused and integrated in a sustainable manner within the proposed external landscaping features also designed by McLean Architects to complement this new facility.
