Shoreditch Tabernacle Baptist Church Hall is a Grade II listed Victorian building which suffered bomb damage in 1944 and subsequently fell into ever-worsening disrepair. Our refurbishment restores the Hall as a church asset while creating a valuable resource within the local community. The completed project includes rehearsal, performance, arts and meeting spaces and offices leased to local charities, as well as accommodating the church’s social outreach programmes.

‘This is an approach to old buildings that is both modest and assertive. The architects have not simply used the building as a provocation for a contemporary intervention, but have worked to highlight its best qualities, and explored the latent potential of its spaces.’ (Chris Foges in Architecture Today, October 2005)
