The Roman Catholic Parish of the Sacred Heart in Battersea serves a multi-cultural community in the heart of this district of London. The church is owned by the Salesians, an Order within the Roman Catholic Church with a particular emphasis on youth work. St.Ann's Gate Architects were appointed in 2006 to assist with the development of proposals to liturgically re-order the church building and to provide new facilities for the parish and for the wider community. Approval for a new church annexe was gained in 2009, designed in a contemporary way to compliment and contrast with the existing C19th church building. The new annexe features a green roof, to assist with the control of surface water run-off, and to present an interesting aspect when viewed from the surrounding high-rise housing blocks.
