Westminster Chapel shortlisted for AJ Award

Features: Westminster Chapel

Also shortlisted for an Architects’ Journal award is Westminster Chapel, with Scott Whitby Studio.

The refurbishment of the Grade II listed chapel optimises and modernises the building for its existing and future use. The initial phase increases activity and visibility throughout, whilst respecting and drawing upon the history of the site and the church, with the removal of restrictive pews and installation of ramps to improve accessibility; entrance and foyer improvements, including a new café, to ensure a notable and welcoming street presence; and the opening up of the main auditorium to improve flow through the building. We were the building services engineers for the project, designing sensitive interventions and improvements, delivered to tight budget and time constraints.
