The project includes a new 18,000 SF church and a full set of parish facilities, including a narthex hall, a parish hall and kitchen. In order to achieve both the religious functions and build the physical basis for this community within a highly stringent budget, approaches to structure, such as the employment of glu-lam girders, and to finishes were chosen to realize the greatest square footage possible within an aesthetic appropriate to the facility's use. The square plan allows radial pews around a circular sanctuary with an overhead light scoop which floods the sanctuary with daylight. The wood girders and beams contrasted against the off white ceilings and walls create a warm atmosphere. Note: The steeple over the entrance pavilion seen in the first photograph was added as a later project.
