Servite Church

Private Client | London

This Victorian, grade II listed, church is hidden behind its narrow Fulham Road street frontage and is approached through a Gothic arched entrance at the base of a belfry tower, into a top-glazed entrance lobby, along a 20 metre colonnade to a columned narthex to the nave of the large church.

The entrance and colonnade were totally refurbished including re-roofing the entrance lobby. A shop, kitchenette and servery were added to the colonnade. These were built on-site by skilled craftsmen employed by the small, quality contractor, using prime American oak. The kitchenette is slotted in behind the curved screen which has become the principal Parish Notice Board. The oak screens are in two halves; the counters sit on doors which fold out from the centre of the bases and the top flaps are supported by gas struts and have downlighters fitted to their underside to highlight the counters.

The Servite Friars see this refurbishment as the first stage in an extensive rolling programme of improvements to the church.
