Text description provided by the architects. 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).
