The solution for this project was to design a glass faced space that both feels open and welcoming while also creating distinct zones that are comfortable at the human scale.
Resurrection Lutheran Church
Phase I consisted of a new worship space for 195, gathering area, cry room, offices, meeting room, rest rooms, mechanical room, kitchen and drive-up passenger loading area. The building is placed towards the far and high side of the gently-sloping site, maximizing its visibility from the adjacent highway.
Building materials were selected for their affordability and appropriateness to a rural setting.
Phase I included an unfinished fellowship hall. This space was finished by the congregation in the years following the project completion.
Parking areas are arrayed in a semi-circle minimizing the walking distance to the main entry. The 2007 Master Plan provided for future growth. The Phase II educational addition was undertaken by GROTH Design Group in 2011.
The St. Leonard’s Parish project is primarily the addition of a new gathering area with support spaces to enhance fellowship for the parish.
Trinity Lutheran Church engaged GROTH to create a master plan on their existing site to provide for expansion needs.
