Project Description

This project addresses the issues present on a compact site where space is limited for the building footprint. The design solution stacks the program into 3 floor plates. The main level consists of lobby, offices and early childhood care. The upper level contains the worship space. The lower level contains christian education space as well as junior high and high school classrooms. A bulk of the exterior envelope is constructed with precast concrete panels making for an efficient and quick erection time of the buildings. The large glass volume on the end of the building provides a pleasant space for occupants to interact before and after services. Horizontal screening on the south face and vertical louvers on east and west facades minimize solar heat gain.
