TAU SENIOR STUDIO 2009: ST.MARTIN-IN-THE-FIELD, LONDON

St.Martin-in-the-Field (1725), by James Gibbs, is located just off London’s Trafalgar Square.  The site includes a North Range (manse and school by John Nash) separated from St Martin’s by the Church Path.  Currently underway is a major addition to complex but almost entirely buried beneath Church Path.  Departing from this project brief, the studio has undertaken an addition, or East Range, that is largely above grade.  Our approach intensifies the issues of maximizing solar access for the new building and the North Range; reducing heat gain and strategizing for natural ventilation cooling.  These concerns do not trivialize the challenge of building a twenty-first century building adjacent, perhaps even joining, historic buildings.  The project for the East Range must also be a good urban building: fronting the pedestrianized Adelaide Street and Duncannon Street; it also has a presence in an open place addressed by the Charing Cross Station; and it frames Church Path in a new way.
