HPA worked with Lancaster Methodist Church on the major refurbishment of The Cornerstone facility, which is located on the corner of busy Dalton Square, in the heart of Lancaster.
The new facility was designed to provide a safe place for people experiencing hardship, and contains meeting spaces, offices, and a community café. The building is also used by a number of charities that support people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
This project saw the complete redesign of the facility, transforming it into a bright and welcoming series of spaces which provide flexible and comfortable accommodation for service users.
We acted as leading designers, with the project being completed in 2014 by Pinington Construction Ltd.
“It has been a remarkable transformation. The Cornerstone is continuing to see increased usage month by month and the design is proving both flexible and resilient.” – Professor Peter Brophy, The Cornerstone.
