Methodist Church and Methodist Homes, Forest Hill
Forest Hill, London
Bolans Architects were invited by Forest Hill Methodist Church and Methodist Homes to design a new church on the exiting tennis courts and garages belonging to the church.
The brief was to create a new destination that will help the church and wider community alike. There was also a requirement to provide sheltered housing for the elderly within the community all on the church site.
The church already had a strong congregational turn out but there was a requirement to allow for greater flexibility in the church' design for adaptability as the needs within church buildings were continuing to evolve. The proposal for the church incorporated 5 different uses within the church building allowing for multiple functions to occur simultaneously.
The sheltered housing provided self contained units for up to 150 residents and high quality landscaping proposals to create a secure and beautiful community for all.
