"Welcome" - Double Glass Facade at Angmering St Margaret's
Location: Angmering St Margarets, West Sussex
In 2009 a double art glass facade was added as part of a major re-ordering and extension to this listed church in Angmering.
The design themes for the facades represent 'welcome', for the new entrance, and 'the church in the community' for the office areas.
The art glass is a principal feature of this east elevation extension forming a new entrance and foyer to one side and new function space and office on the other. Facing out to the village, the enamelled, carved, and polished art glass facades are intended to reach out to meet the parish, to provide a lively and inspiring approach to the church whilst enhancing the interior.
This project won a Sussex Heritage Trust Award and was Joint Community Winner of the RIBA Downland Prize 2009.
