St Agnes Workspace Units

St Agnes, Isles of Scilly, Cornwall.

An existing small community hall is incorporated into this enlarged new centre, which includes start-up work-spaces, offices, community hall and exhibition area. Internally, openable screens maximise flexibility of use and provide well-lit, welcoming spaces.  The build included conservation work to the existing historic hall and timber-framed construction for the new elements. 

The project provides much-needed facilities for the community on the small island of St Agnes.  The location, 25 miles off the Cornish coast, strongly affected the choice of construction as virtually all materials have to be shipped to the island.  The design applies principles of Passivhaus and BREEAM to ensure a sustainable build in keeping with the island’s ethos of self-sufficiency and low-impact architecture.
