This multi-faceted church facility combines a fellowship hall, education wing and lobby in a design that melds congregants’ beliefs with practical usage, while incorporating a plan for the addition of a future sanctuary as budget allows. Scale and massing of the facility were determined with sensitivity to the church’s residential context—resulting in a design that respects its low-rise neighbors, as well as using resilient, low-maintenance exterior materials that reflect the palette of the surrounding buildings. The flexible interior program features a fellowship hall that doubles as a gymnasium, which required materials that offered both durability and strong acoustic properties: Architects chose randomly spaced stained maple slats over an underlying Tectum layer and athletic grade carpet to create a space that could comfortably accommodate both functions. As a way of personalizing its spiritual message, the congregation produced 12 stained glass windows, symbolic of the 12 apostles, to be placed within a gently protruding apse, creating not only a sense of community among worshippers, but also setting it apart as a sacred space. The altar and apse can be seen from the lobby through a glazed wall meant to shield noise while allowing overflow capacity into the space. Though rectilinear in plan, the church facility’s overall design provides visual variety via overhanging rooflines, the protruding apse, and rust, cedar and steel cladding that breaks up the building’s 13,000-square-foot mass for a neighborhood- and congregation-friendly aesthetic.
