A new annexe is proposed at the Church of St Tarcisius to provide modern flexible meeting, dining and office spaces to replace the existing outmoded adjacent presbytery, church hall and other accommodation within the parish.
We are delighted to be continuing our long association with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Arundel & Brighton, working with the church at St.Tarcisius Camberley. Our approach to the design of this new building takes traditional forms and gives them a contemporary twist.
The new annexe has been designed to sympathetically sit alongside the church building to provide flexible meeting, gathering and dining spaces, which can be used in harmony with the current activities of the church. The two buildings are proposed to be separated via a single storey glazed corridor, which will allow free movement between the new annexe and church, whilst at the same time be a natural space for people to meet with views of the decorative nave windows above. The large dining hall is serviced by a semi commercial kitchen which also serves the large gathering space in the main entrance foyer. The overall proposed redevelopment of the site has been designed to enhance the presence of the existing church building within this important centre of town location, whilst at the same time respecting the architecture of the church and neighbouring buildings. The proposals have recently received Faculty approval from the Southern Historic Churches Committee, with a new planning application being made to the local authority within the next few months.
