08 Jan St Martin-in-the-Fields
Eric Parry Architects – The renewal project at St Martin-in-the-Fields is one of the most significant and complex currently being developed undertaken in London. Plans for St Martin’s are set against a rich backdrop of heritage, community and faith that is simultaneously sacred and secular. The site of St Martin-in-the-Fields is highly significant: a complex mix of buildings including the church, schoolsocial care facilities, residential apartments and the underground crypts and vaults. Eric Parry Architects’ response to the brief centres around a robust solution masterplan that connects each of the different elements of the site, creating and framing a space to nurture and sustain the community.
