Silver Street Baptist Church.

The village hall come community centre was designed to be flexible. The hall itself was designed for competitive badminton whilst the stage and associated rooms behind are used for dramatic presentations and dressing rooms. The building has a fully equipped kitchen that can cater for parties and receptions and a committee room completes the accommodation.

The buildings design includes the prospect of future extension. It is built part traditionally with load baring walls but the hall is supported with a steel portal frame. Faced with brick and textured split blocks under a clay tile roof the building occupies a pivotal position in the centre of the village.

Having successfully completed a detached pool building for the same client the practice was appointed to carry out remodelling and extensions to the existing farmhouse.

It was felt that recent works carried out by the previous owners did little for the integrity of the building.

Peter Davis saw his opportunity to fulfil the clients brief by largely removing these additions and unifying the buildings appearance using carefully selected local stone coupled with sensitive traditional detailing and oak joinery. The new planting and stone garden walling matching the house anchors the building to its site.
