GRACE FELLOWSHIP CHURCH
The primary task of this project was to combine efficiency and a non-negotiable budget with a design statement that would reflect the congregation's warm and friendly personality and small town values.
Efficiency was achieved by creating spaces that easily multi-task for a variety of uses, potential internal expansion capabilities, and efficient floor plan arrangement. The "metal building" concept was integrated into the efficient floor plan achieving a construction cost that was within the limited project budget.
Located on a major county road on a 40-acre tract of land, the front of the building was designed to merge two sections at a 45 degree intersection, juxtaposing the front facade of the building to the nearby county road, presenting both north and southbound traffic with a dramatic form and a large glass entrance which welcomes all who enter.
