St Martins Church

Magdalene Drive, Edinburgh is a mixed use development of 12 flats and 11 houses along with a new Church building for St Martin’s Parish Church. The proposal for the site was to demolish the existing Church building and replace with a smaller building more suited to St Martin’ s current and future needs.

The site is split into 3 components; the Church, block of flats and housing. The development is unified through the use of a limited palette of materials. A multi-hued brick gives the whole development a more intimate scale with the colour variation giving richness to the otherwise simple forms.
