Before This fellowship hall addition, while clearly a 2000’s structure, expands the church in a natural, organic way with great respect for the original architecture. The existing church was built in 1928-30 and is brick masonry with limestone detailing. The existing main entrance faces east and includes exterior and interior stairs. The Fellowship Hall and lone restroom were in the basement. The church wanted a new fellowship space, kitchen and restrooms on the same floor as the sanctuary, along with an accessible new main entry with an elevator large enough for caskets. The addition needed to respect the beloved original church. B

A substantial amount of glass was used at the new entry to help transition from the original to the new structure. The new fellowship space is placed adjacent to the sanctuary where it can double as overflow space. Warm colors and wood bracket details reflect the character of the original building.

The scale of the addition was kept smaller and stepped down from the original building to respect the dominance of the historic sanctuary.
