Faith United Church of Christ
Realizing the final phase of a mid twentieth century MasterPlan, this 14,500 s/f addition included a new Sanctuary, Narthex, Sacristy, Administrative Offices, Conference Spaces, and Parking.
Weaving the character of the 1950 design into the early twenty first century, the project included a dramatic lighting aspect featuring no exposed fixtures. Oriented Southeast, this flood of natural light bathes the structure of fir columns. Dancing in and out of the white gypsum, this interplay is punctuated by a dramatic translucent crucifix embedded within the wall behind the alter.
Providing a unique and meditative house for worship, the exterior of brick evoked both the 1950 design, as well as a clear character which blended seamlessly with the wider residential nature of the neighborhood.
