Ash are very excited to be completing works on the Grade II Listed St. Mary’s Church in Stoke Newington. The church was built in the 1850s with some 1990’s community rooms to the south of the Church. This project, designed by Erect Architecture, involves the demolition to parts of the 1990s building and the creation of a new building in between the two original buildings. It will also see the construction of a new single-storey extension within the existing courtyard of the Church. This project will create additional dining spaces with cooling and heating systems throughout the extension. Ash set off on this project at the very start of the summer and will continue till late 2019.
