St. Oswald’s Centre
St. Oswald's Centre
Brief and Response
St. Oswald's Church and Hall is a community owned space in Bruntsfield, Edinburgh. The vision for the buildings is to create a vibrant, family-focused, community hub with facilities for clubs, classes and leisure activities. This revived building will become the St. Oswald's Centre.
However, the buildings required renovation before being able to offer these community facilities. GLM have been providing architectural and building surveying support for the restoration of the buildings. The phase one programme is underway to secure the building, making it structurally stable, wind and water tight.
Once the remedial works are complete, the phase two programme will seek to improve the functionality of the buildings. As part of this, planning and listed building has been approved for a single storey extension to the rear, installation of air source heat pumps and internal accessibility improvements.
