Haven Green Baptist Church

Haven Green Baptist Church

Project details

The Baptist church located within the Haven Green Conservation Area in Ealing Broadway has been under constant use by various groups organised by the HGBC trust. To promote greater use and deliver a mission statement, as well as to non-believers visiting the church for various activities, the HGBC trust decided to improve the entrance of the Haven Green Halls to welcome more visitors and improve accessibility and ancillary facilities. JAIA Architects worked closely with the church communities to finalise the entrance and further ancillary facilities with a subtle modern contrast to the existing 137 year old church building. The improved entrance comprises of a new reception space, with a more transparent entrance door and curtain wall. The appearance of the elevation has greatly enhanced with a new aluminium canopy with subtle lighting to highlight the modern quality, where visitors may find harmonised contrast of old and new meet.
