Renovation and Addition

This congregation needed new places and ways to come together.  In addition to renovation of the school and social hall, a new, more usable lobby was required, as were more classrooms and a library, an alternate worship space, and offices.  The building also needed to be made accessible and brought up to current codes.

This is a two-story building. The site slopes, so the sanctuary, social hall, alternate worship, and administration are at the upper floor.  The school has its own entry at grade at the lower level. 

The school was renovated, given its own accessible entrance and provided with a new library.
