CMA are delighted to have secured approval at committee last week for works to St Michael and All Angels Church in Shoreditch to allow for its use as an office.  The former Victorian Church designed by James Brooks is one of just six Grade I listed buildings in Hackney and recently served as an antiques store and showroom, but has been empty for over a year. 

The proposals designed by Trehearne Architects centre around the revealing of the vast volume of the church’s nave by the removing various temporary structures inserted previously, with a new partial contemporary mezzanine floor added along with other works to breathe life back into the building and give it a viable commercial future. 

In addition, a new five storey office block will be built on the adjoining yard fronting onto Leonard Street to contextually repair the 'gap tooth' in the streetscape.  Together, the two elements will deliver over 30,000 sqft of office floorspace.
