St. JOHNS CHURCH

St Johns Church (Shrewsbury) by Contemporary, Modern and Conservation architects Baart Harries Newall (BHN architects) based in Shrewsbury.
St. Johns Church
Conversion of a Former Methodist Church Into 6 Luxury Apartments, in the Heart of the Shrewsbury Town Centre Conservation Area.
 
The Victorian church was not listed, but provided a fine façade onto St John’s Hill, and a strong contribution to the streetscape. 
 
The site is landlocked to the rear, with rights of privacy and light accrued to adjacent buildings. It was not possible to insert new windows in the external walls, and light is provided for the new apartments by the creation of an internal courtyard in the rear part of the former nave.
 
Beyond the original church walls a contemporary architectural intervention contrasts  with the character of the church.
 
Numerous interior features including the existing roof structure have been retained inside the church to form unique spaces and individual apartments.
 
A walnut staircase rises up in the main circulation space looking out over the new courtyard and pool.
