Working closely with the Corporation of London and the PCC to create a new square for London, and to provide level access within the existing west door of this well proportioned Wren church – a Grade 1 Listed building.
Sesame Access lifts were used to create the disabled lift system, that was totally invisible and hidden within the stone steps. The whole assembly retracts to reveal a stainless steel rising lift platform. The lift event is totally automated, allowing disabled and ambulant users to continue to use the doorway, whilst the lift is in operation.
The new square was laid out to evoke the Cordwainer Ward and the historic connection with Moores and the geometry of Spain – sublime.
