Holton Lee is a charitable trust which supports disabled people in a holistic way, enabling them to develop in the areas of personal growth through the arts, the environment and non-denominational spirituality. Faith House accommodates the spiritual curriculae of Holton Lee’s programme, providing a quiet room for individual contemplation and a larger space for religious assembly, meetings, display of art and possibly rehearsals. The building is an elegant flat roofed timber–framed structure, which sits at the top of a raised path, resembling a miniature Greek temple. Views of the surrounding countryside are afforded by full-length windows, opening the interior spaces to the trees and the sky beyond. The setting is enhanced by circle of cut trees, installed from floor to ceiling in the centre of the quiet room, creating a contemplative environment in which nature and art can be admired and studied (text from architects' website).
