Unitarian Church Hall

The Unitarian Church of Cambridge has a long history of providing well-run and good quality activities for a wide cross section of the community; some are organised directly by the church, with other groups making use of its premises. With the hall being so popular, the church decided that it was the time to address the problems of accessibility they were facing, as well as to improve the entrance/lobby of the building, gain additional storage space and improve their WC facilities.

The final scheme include the creation of a ramp between the main church building and the subservient church hall, improving the accessibility and use of both buildings and their access from the main street and allowing for the first time the level connection between the two buildings. To further improve upon that, the entrance of the lobby was extended and the old small doors were replaced with an automated fully glazed 1 1/2 leaf one to improve accessibility with push chairs and wheelchairs.

Internally, the lobby space was redesigned with aesthetics and materials to match the history and design of the hall, while the space was carefully arranged to provide 3 unisex WCs + 1 Dis.WC, as well as a storage room for the great amount of chairs and tables of the hall.
