Beyond its academic mission, this glassy, four-story facility will be welcoming and community-facing as the university begins to transform its Clybourn St. corridor.
Lakeland Community Church
Lake Geneva, WI
The congregation at Lakeland Community Church had outgrown their second addition only 1 ½ years after completion. Recognizing a need to accommodate their growth with a long-term vision, Lakeland engaged GROTH Design Group to develop a master plan for the long-term vision on the site and develop Phase I design documents which include a new 1,000 person worship space, new gathering and fellowship addition, new office space, large drop-off canopies, and other support spaces. The master plan expands their children’s ministry and additional support space.
A design was developed that accommodates the existing site layout while providing a worship space that will meet their long-term vision.
A large precast volume is surrounded by lower height spaces to maximize the physical space and construction dollar. Wood and stone are incorporated to bring warmth to the building entry and give the church a new presence on their site. New site circulation has been developed to better accommodate their peak traffic flows and the drop-off canopies provide welcome weather protection at the entries.
The new high school is the visual center of the campus and incorporates a palette of materials and forms unifying the variety of current building styles while also conforming to strict design regulations.
GROTH Design Group assisted with a year-long study to redefine facilities for Technical Education the Family & Consumer Sciences (FACS) programs in Cudahy High School.
