Bass Studio Architects provided full-service design and programming for the 32,000-square-foot addition.The project began as a programming and feasibility analysis to determine whether this community should stay and renovate, add, or move.

Proposed as a two-story structure mitigating a large hill on the site, the building navigates a tough context between a small existing structure and an existing creek and easement that bisects the church property.

The design seamlessly brings together conventionally built elements with large, future, pre-engineered building components housing the new sanctuary.

The Fellowship Hall Connection Court and Classroom wing was constructed as Phase I.
