St. Michael's, Fulwell

MFA were appointed through competitive interview to prepare a masterplan for the re-ordering of St. Michael’s, Fulwell for contemporary worship and community use. The Grade II listed church had been closed for over a decade and faced an uncertain future before being resurrected as a vibrant new parish church. The proposals including a radical re-ordering of the nave to enlarge the worship space, as well as an overhaul of the 1980s gallery structure to provide 21st century community facilities whilst revealing and celebrating the original church architecture. The proposals underwent extensive stakeholder consultation and have now received planning and listed building consents with works due to commence on site in early 2020.
