Selectaglaze helps church find a new “congregation”

Client:      Godolphin and Latymer

One of London’s Grade II* Listed churches has been reborn as part of a state-of-the-art performance centre. In 2006 the 150 year old Victorian St. John the Evangelist church was decommissioned by the Diocese of London. However, the Governors of the neighbouring Godolphin and Latymer School recognised its potential to play a major part in the development of a much needed music and drama centre for their pupils, so a 125 year lease was duly agreed. Working closely with Architects, Burrell, Foley and Fischer, Selectaglaze was tasked with providing units to minimise noise ingress and egress without introducing additional sight lines to the Gothic style windows, particularly the 2 monumental windows at either end of the church. A total of 96 units were provided with either white or grey/beige coating, to successfully blend with the building’s beautifully restored stone and brickwork.
