BURROW MUMP

~ church rehabilitation ~
Location: Burrow Bridge (England)
Year: 2020

St Michael’s Church is situated in an isolated spot close to the small village of Burrowbridge. It was built in the 15th century and has been witness to a number of conflicts, that made it stayed in ruin at the end.

The project proposes a sober restoration, with a white volume that resembles the possible original image of the church. This volume, has a series of horizontal slats that follow the outline of the ruin and show it inside to generate a focus of attention.

 

The proposal does not touch the volume of the ruin, situating itself as an element that is inscribed inside it.
