shedkm win church competition
    shedkm have won an invited competition to design our first church building. the project for the parish of st peters, heswall, replaces an existing church and church hall with a state of the art worship space and enhanced community facilities

    the scheme - which we christened 'the lighthouse' for the competition entry - transforms the church’s presence on the busy telegraph road and invites passers by to engage with the activities happening inside

    a simple, strong form is extruded along the length of the site and expressed both externally and internally, with a sequence of spaces layered by freestanding volumes within. all service elements are accommodated in the flank walls which mediate between the neighbouring buildings and the new structure
