Created to celebrate the faith of a congregation
The design concept of our new building was inspired by the form of a mustard seed, a biblical reference that symbolizes the strong faith and fellowship of the congregation, as well as the connection the building will have to nature. The building’s elliptical shape was designed to strategically bring the experience of the outdoors inside to the occupants.
“What was most important in the conceptual design of this building was to create a welcoming feeling and a diagram that was clear and understandable for both the first-time visitor as well as those who attend on a regular basis,” says AS+GG Design Partner Adrian Smith. “The gentle curve of the circulation paths allow occupants to flow through the space, while enjoying views of the outside.”
The use of natural light was imperative to the success of the design. Floor-to-ceiling windows that face out toward the campus and inward to the intimate courtyard will provide views and daylighting to most of the spaces. The building faces directly south, with a 15’ deep aluminum sunshade that protects the front of the building façade from direct sunlight.
