St Marylebone success for RMA
RMA has been selected as part of Caroe Architecture’s multi-disciplinary team for the delivery of an exciting project at St Marylebone Church, London.
The £8.5 million, Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF)-supported scheme, which is in the early stages of development, provides new community facilities through enlargement of the crypt space, and a new pavilion entrance opening on to the public gardens. St Marylebone is a Grade 1 listed historic building, dating from 1813 to a design by Thomas Hardwick.
Our landscape design will create a flexible, welcoming green space that transforms the churchyard garden into a more useable place relating better to the church building, with opportunities to wander through it and linger.
Robert Myers said, “Besides providing settings for significant buildings, these precincts are used for informal recreation, quiet reflection, outdoor liturgy and walking routes through the city, as well as larger events and gatherings. As a result, there are many day-to-day, practical demands on the space. RMA is experienced in resolving these issues in an inspirational and original way.”
