Stonegrove Church and Community Centre
Lying at the heart of Sprunt’s £300m masterplan for 1,000 new homes around the new London Academy in Barnet, the recently completed church and Community centre provides a vibrant focus for the new community.
The challenge was to bring together the Church group, the community trust and the new nursery to create a space that each felt was their own within a multi-functional building. The design involved an ‘umbrella’ roof over three distinct zones, with a central spine and café binding the spaces together. From the outside, the different programmes are read through two distinctive materials.
