The St Matthew church project required maximum seating and space achieved for budget while creating their sacred environs. This highly stringent budget in combination with the goal of providing an open space with seating proximal to the sanctuary drove the design of this worship space. The concept was to reduce the side exterior perimeter walls under a ‘tent’. A large gable roof with a low spring line supported by glu-lam girders accomplished this. The square plan provides seating proximal to the altar. The exposed wooden structure and decking create a warm atmosphere on the interior. A textured glass reredos with liturgical seasonal hangings allows the chapel to serve as overflow space for the main nave.
