In 2016 we were appointed by His People Church to design the conversion of an existing industrial space in Umgeni Road, Durban into a new premises for the Church. The Church community consists mainly of students and young families and the sense of community is vibrant and strong. The spaces required included the main auditorium space but also a ‘connect zone‘, coffee and social areas, offices, youth and kids zones. They wanted to embrace the industrial aesthetic and yet introduce warmth and texture to create inviting spaces to be within the whole, all with limited resources. Our team embraced this challenge, researched and sought out inspiring precedent to experience, and put our ideas together in a ‘fly through‘ video to present to the church community which they were blown away by. The project is currently in the implementation phase.
