TKA was commissioned by members of the Regents Square United Reformed Church to redesign an existing 1960s church building to create a new church and community centre open to people of all faiths.

The centre includes a new accessible entrance, a community cafe, a sacred space, church and three community spaces as well as ancillary accommodation. At the centre of the building is the conical sacred space rising up through the roof. The new ground floor extensions were constructed from sustainable laminated timber
A new garden has been created from the existing car park at the rear as a place of tranquility and calm. Extensive community consultation took place prior to submitting the planning application and a focused approach to sustainability was undertaken from the outset that included sustainable laminated timber construction.
Lumen was awarded an RIBA London Regional Award in 2009.
