The Presbytery, Barking
Client: Diocese of Brentwood
LAP successfully obtained planning permission for a new purpose-built Presbytery which will replace the existing. The design approach was to create a simple well-crafted low energy building that meets the future needs of the Parish.
The elevational treatment has remained sympathetic to the existing church and the roofscape derives from the fleche found on the existing church and articulates the common room both internally, with vaulted ceilings, and externally with a pronounced balcony/terrace.
