St Aubyn’s Church & Library

Project Description

A £2m refurbishment for Plymouth City Council St Aubyn’s is a rare example in Plymouth of a Grade II listed Georgian church with an originally rectangular shape, plain glass windows and important galleries. Its situation in a major regeneration area has offered the possibility of serious development work

The church building has undergone a transformation which will ensure its future for the next generations

Funded by Devonport Regeneration Community Partnership, St Aubyn’s has been converted into Devonport Library on the ground floor, with a new worship and performance area situated on a new mezzanine in the chancel and repaired balconies

The church was re-opened early in 2011 with a formal ceremony to mark the importance of this development for the local community

The development consists of the refurbishment of the grade II listed church and change of use to a mixed use space with the ground floor being a public library serving the local community and the first floor being a worship area and exhibition space
