St. John's Lutheran Church | Wilmette, IL

St. John Lutheran Church desired better provision for gathering and fellowship area within their existing building. The Master Planning for the church identified an under-utilized area as a potential location for a contemporary place for both fellowship and gathering.

The renewal of the space allows flexible fellowship that can accommodate gathering for worship, church dining, light recreation and meeting space.

Two thirds of the gym was retained for flexible fellowship and dining. The remainder of the gym area was converted to storage and restrooms. The stage was transformed into a conference room. A café counter for coffee and light refreshments was created between the dining/gathering area and the existing church kitchen. The renovation of the space transformed the aesthetics, focusing on improvements to lighting and materials suitable for fellowship and appealing to a more contemporary membership.

Upgrades to the mechanical and electrical systems were also made. The project also redesigned the layout of the existing parking lot to improve circulation, outdoor lighting, and upgrades to finishes in the church entry and main stairwell, and improvements to lighting in the existing kitchen.

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.

Saint Paul | Davenport, IA

The scope of the project called for designing a new 750-900 seat Worship and Gathering addition onto a 1950’s Georgian style facility. A key focus for the addition project was providing presence and hospitality into the surrounding community. This is achieved through three design elements: a light-filled tower, an entry portico filled with doors and windows connecting the Gathering and Worship, and a glass-walled ambulatory on the south wall of the Worship.

The liturgical design fans the assembly seating 120 degrees. The chancel design houses a new altar, ambo and font. Adjacent to the chancel, a 1,000 sq. ft. platform suitable for choir and organ performance seats up to 120 musicians.
