It’s a privilege to announce that Fergus Connolly has been appointed Inspecting Architect to Grade 1 listed Christ Church Spitalfields in east London. The church was completed in 1729 to designs by Nicholas Hawksmoor and is widely considered a masterpiece of the English Baroque.
Fergus succeeds Michael Morrison, who has held the position for 20 years, and has stewarded Christ Church through several phases of meticulous conservation. Most recent works included his award winning reordering scheme, and oversight of the crypt refurbishment by Dow Jones Architects in 2015.
CWa look forward to working with the church and parish over the coming years; with an ambition to maintain its high standard of care, whilst gaining the deepest appreciation of both fabric and mission. Our practice recognises Christ Church as both a hugely significant piece of architecture, and as a incredibly vibrant hub of Christian outreach. It is an inspiration, and our focus, to be working in settings such as this.
