Emil Eve and Arup win Brighton church ideas comp

Emil Eve Architects' proposals for St Martin's Church in Brighton

Separate bids named joint winners to rethink future of grade II* gothic revival building

Emil Eve Architects and Arup have been named joint winners of an ideas competition to find new uses for the grade II*-listed St Martin’s Church in Brighton.

The practices were picked from 28 “extraordinary and diverse” responses to the call for creative solutions that would “respect the integrity” of the under-used gothic revival structure, at the same time as “adding new life and economic sustainability”.
