St Michael & All Angels Church

Submitted to the London Borough of Hackney for planning and listed building consent, and in close collaboration and consultation with Historic England, we are commissioned to seek consent for a new use to breathe life back into the Grade I listed asset that is St Michael & All Angels Church. Our proposals centre around the revealing of the vast volume of the church’s nave by the removal of various temporary structures inserted by the architectural salvage companies that has occupied the deconsecrated church since the 1970s, whilst a new amorphous mezzanine is proposed to contrast with the formal geometry of the church. In the brownfield yard outside, a new contemporary office is proposed to not only compliment the polychromatic brickwork of the church, but also to contextually repair the “gap tooth” in the streetscape.
