Community

Community

We work with a diverse range of charities, organisations and public bodies. Working collaboratively we create vibrant spaces with a sense of place and purpose for the community to enjoy. Our sensitive approach to design, coupled with our ability to communicate the architectural process, reassures stakeholders and helps them to develop architecture that both communicates and develops their ethos and vision.

Bath Rugby

Bath is the UK’s only World Heritage City. It’s also a city fanatical about rugby. So where do you put a Premiership-standard stadium to achieve maximum capacity and cultural sensitivity? 

The Forum

SRA had previously converted this listed Art Deco cinema into an acclaimed church, community centre and concert venue. When new funding became available, they invited us to maximise the upgrade within a strict budget.

Freedom Church Auditorium

We designed this dynamic city centre church on a constrained riverside site. Our aim was to create a clean, modern place of worship with the flexibility to double as an arts space.
 

Bridgemead

Designing and developing an innovative flood defense scheme to protect this Bath based care home from rising river waters, as well as integrating a sensitive and considered extension to future proof the space.

Komedia

The Beau Nash Picture House has been at the heart of Bath culture since 1920. Restoring it to new glory, with a light modern feel, has brought life and laughter to the community.

HorseWorld

HorseWorld rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes horses, as well as working with numerous local charities. SRA’s winning scheme breathed new life into their current facilities and provided the charity with a new visitor centre.
