St. Everilda’s Church Extension

Architect/ Designer: PPIY Architects
Client/Developer: Parochial Church Council
Builder: Tom Rhodes & Son

This is one of the smallest projects in this year’s submission – the addition of a kitchen and lavatories to the charming parish church of St Everilda in Poppleton.  It is an excellent example of how to make a new building that is entirely sympathetic to its context and its neighbours – using carefully chosen materials – pale yellow brick, cut stone, coursed rubble-work, and slate – to match those of the church.  The detailing is carefully judged and the craftsmanship as near perfect as one could wish.  In a few years time this modest addition will seem to have been part of the church for generations.
