Community Building

Somerton, Somerset

The trustees of this Somerset chapel came to O2i Design looking for a scheme to expand and improve their current facilities.

The challenge was to enhance the existing buildings within a restricted site and increase the accommodation to enhance the Centre’s many activities without adversely affecting them.

Improved facilities will allow the Centre to carry out their work in an improved environment, accessible to all whilst larger facilities will be flexible and enable their activities to thrive and increase.  Their work includes Christian worship, teaching, pastoral care, overseas mission support, youth and children work from toddler groups to youth summer camps and ecumenical projects.  To help the Trust consult with their parishioners, O2i Design produced some illustrations to ensure everyone could visualise the options available.  O2i Design Consultants have aimed to create a warm, peaceful new space capable of welcoming many visitors of all ages and flexible enough to meet the needs of all the group’s activities.
