Project Detail

Holy Trinity Church, Leicester

Small Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2019 Finalist

The Holy Trinity Church in Leicester has been modernised to increase capacity and improve both access and flow.

The main church building opened in 1838 and links through to a traditional 1930s house via a series of extensions completed in the 1980s. The church had what was described as a fairly bland but functional interior

The main hall has now been altered to increase the size of the balcony. The capacity has gone up from 450 people to 600. Two new staircases allow worshippers to access the balcony more easily.

Project Overview

Working with the restrictions of Holy Trinity Church’s Grade II* listing, the project had to enhance the space to meet the needs of its increasing numbers of worshippers within the building’s existing footprint.

The church now has a brighter, welcoming entrance and foyer with improved wheelchair access, larger modern kitchens, dining area and toilets.

There is new LED lighting with central control. And the newly extended stage now has theatre lighting and AV, centrally managed from the control desk.

The new, larger balcony and integral stairway bring worshippers together into a more obviously communal nave.
