The three-story addition solved numerous space/programming issues for this growing congregation. A new secure nursery area is located adjacent to the largest worship space with children’s Christian education rooms on the floor above. The Youth program completes the top floor and permits the numerous “temporary” moveable trailers to finally be removed from on-site.
While matching existing brick at the grade level, a clean stucco finish and simple vertical arrangements of windows reduce the scale of this large structure (50,652 sf) to relate better to the current two-story church. A casual atmosphere is promoted by a hospitality feel to the interior design, and the “Unchained” youth area has a more “cutting-edge” industrial grit.
Master planning permits an expansion of the lobby and a larger sanctuary to be constructed on campus in the future.
