Hope Church

Oconomowoc, WI

Hope Church is a growing church west of Milwaukee. They are a church that was designed to specifically serve citizens of Lake Country who do not attend any church and help them develop a growing faith in God. The congregation had been worshiping at a school and was seeking a permanent home for their ministry.

The 11-acre site was designed to allow for easy navigation for first-time visitors. The layout accommodates easy site circulation and a total of 300 parking spaces. Natural landscaping and storm-water management measures provide environmental protections while enhancing the site aesthetics.

The building includes a 700-person worship space, hospitality and fellowship areas, office space, children’s ministry areas, and support spaces. The building design also thoughtfully connects to outdoor areas for gathering and children’s ministry.
