Following a master planning phase (to determine the future course of action for church and school), the church decided to build a small addition to address some short term needs. The new building provides them with much-needed multi-purpose/gathering space to supplement the existing Narthex, addresses accessibility issues, provides a choir/band room with direct access to the choir loft and provides new office space for the church and pastoral staff. The basement level was left as shell space for future computer lab and other support spaces for the school. A challenge for this project was to match all of the different levels of the existing buildings with the new work. On the exterior, the addition strives to compliment the existing church without being overpowering. It also conveniently hides parts of the nondescript 1970’s school located to the rear. The building is constructed of load-bearing masonry and steel with cast stone veneer and copper roof.
