St. Matthew's Lutheran School and Church

Vision Leads to New Daycare & School Building | Oconomowoc, WI

GROTH Design Group worked with a construction manager to evaluate the existing facility and provide a conceptual plan for the new site. Through visioning workshops, staff and member interviews and with the help of civil and architectural engineers, the church purchased land. GROTH Design Group provided a layout for the school and church with additional, new programming for First Steps, an early childhood/day care. The worship space will remain on the existing site for now.

With limited growth potential for church and school on the existing site, St. Matthew’s purchased a new parcel of land in an undeveloped annex of the city.

The school features preschool, K-5 classrooms, including cafeteria, stage, gym, library, specialty classrooms and offices. Both the cafeteria and gym will use the double- sided stage for worship and school productions. The day care/early childhood will house 90 children under four years of age.
