Richard Benson Hall, East Oxford

An extensive refurbishment of the Richard Benson Hall (formally known as the SSMJ Hall) for St Mary and St John Church on Cowley Road in East Oxford. Works included replacing the rotting floors in the two halls, adding underfloor heating throughout, installing a new kitchen, and upgrading WC amenities including adding an accessible toilet. The windows were carefully restored, new lighting added, and the ceilings and walls painted. The result of this hard work is a sensitively restored and architecturally significant building which gives back to both the church congregation and the local area a valuable community asset.
