City Architecture Office was appointed to undertake an architectural feasibility study to consider the development of community facilities to be created at Rosyth Parish Church.

The vision is to establish a multi-use hub to ensure that the church and buildings are long-term asset for the benefit of the community at the heart of the town.

At the core of this project are design proposals for facilities that can be provided by remodelling and improving the existing fabric with the aim of meeting the spiritual and social needs of the community.

The design vision has three key aspects:
  1. Bring the street level up to the entrance.
  2. Create an attractive, visible, spacious & versatile foyer and cafe linking the main buildings.
  3. Create new roms and an upper level within the church hall to provide flexible office space and meeting rooms available to rent.

This approach retains the original character of the building, resolves accessibility problems and creates opportunities for contact and interaction with the community.
