St Marys Church

St Mary’s and St Abraams Community church hall.

The proposal comprises of a very light structure of steel and etched glass creating a delicate envelope to the building with a veil like quality to it’s elevations. The motif for the etching is taken from a Coptic church in Egypt from the 5th century. It is an abstract organic repeated pattern that reflects the culture and inhabitancy of the space whilst also sitting comfortably within the context of the church and the neighbouring buildings.
