Fawn United Methodist Church
Fawn Grove, PA
Sensitive reconstruction of a sanctuary & lobby addition (13,000 sf) to replace the original sanctuary destroyed by fire in 2005.
While the massing of the steeple with a pair of gable roofs references the former historic building, the angled twisting of the floor plan permitted a new larger naturally-lit lobby space. The new fellowship area also included an elevator for accessibility, new ADA restrooms, and moved the nursery space adjacent to the sanctuary. Provisions are in-place for a future mezzanine, and new stained glass windows replicated the originals. All while working within the incredibly tight footprint between the road and the adjacent cemetery.
Awarded an Excellence in Construction Award by the Associated Builders and Contractors Association.
