From the architect. The program included a new 25,000 sf freestanding church building comprised of a worship sanctuary, administrative offices, and classrooms for an existing congregation of 450. In addition, the project required the renovation of two existing single level buildings, one from the 1960’s and one from the 1990’s, and a complete site redesign including parking, lighting and landscaping. The challenge was to establish an intimate church campus by creating a new exterior courtyard as a catalyst for interaction as an exterior room joining the new and existing buildings.

The project's Interior and exterior were developed using the Fibonacci sequence to establish scale and proportion in tandem with the churches’ theological requirements. The many architectural features of the project were derived from theological precedence while reflecting quantities of numerical biblical importance (i.e. 3 olive trees, 7 candle boxes, 12 office windows, 14 pendant lights, etc).

this design shows the use of light, colour and materials in a very interesting way. the combination is but a rare invitation to God.

The sense of the space definite provides a contemplation and communication with God.

So many churches I visit today rely on strobe lights, 3 projections screens, fog machines, internet, movie set back drops. From the photos it doesn't look like they do.

I am in Florida and hope to visit there soon!

Thanks for posting.

the congregation interior looks like that of a restaurant.

After seeing the map marker, I was moments from walking out the door to snap some photos of my own (the marker is about a quarter mile from my home). Here's a spot on map of the building's location: http://maps.google.com/maps?oe...

D. Strong · November 08, 2010

Great program, but a missed opportunity. The stone work alone is screaming for more attention to detail. As opposed to the random home depot patterning. Overall, the design reads like a one liner.

Look at Trahan's Holy Rosary Church and the emphasis on the spirit of the place, not the theatrics.

Scott · February 17, 2011 03:42 AM

D. Strong,

Just twenty years ago we were renting a tiny strip of space in a string of retail establishments as a congregation of about 150-200, including kids. God has blessed us with this cherished church building and we trust His Kingdom will benefit for the work of the Triune God going forth within its walls. Drop by and visit.

ygogolak · November 08, 2010 10:09 PM

I agree that the stone is a little out of place, but I don't see why you would compare it to Trahan's . They don't have any furniture in the space and therefor you have no idea of how the space actually functions. This project is much more suited to the masses that actually will use the space.
