Info

The Cornerstone City Church offices is Phase 1 in an adaptive reuse project on the banks of the River Foyle.  The existing fabric is a collection of spaces made up from a former supermarket and storage area.  The design sought to use a new layout for the whole church complex which accommodates a pinwheel of activity arranged around and over an internal street.

Phase1 acts as the Church offices and social hub which needed to be doubled in size to accommodate all the activities front of house.  The design sought to highlight the existing industrial space while affording natural light into the depth of the interiors.  Original elements that were exposed included the concrete frame structure, steel beams and masonry brickwork.  Phase 2 is to be started in early 2016.
