Designed by Honeyman Keppie architects in the late 19th century, Auchterarder Parish Church is regarded as an important example of Romantic architecture during the Victorian era and features details designed by the young Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
The Church of Scotland began sourcing funds to build a new extension to the church in 2000. DSSR was part of the design team with architect Hurd Rolland to develop proposals for a new centre that would offer facilities to the community that included a 250-seat hall, crèche and multi-activity rooms as well as various other support accommodation.
Construction work on the new extension finally began in early 2009 and the building was completed ahead of schedule in January 2010. The design is a modern interpretation of the traditional cloister and uses simple, natural materials to compliment the original stonework of the church.
