2nd Church Christ Scientist
Notting Hill, London
We were asked to propose a way in which a large 900 seat church could be made to feel more intimate for smaller gatherings whilst making minimal alterations to its fabric, the building being listed. A suspended central light fitting can be lowered over the central area, and "defines" an area beneath it. The scheme was inspired by the dramatic hanging baldechino in the cathedral of Palma, Majorca designed by Gaudi.
