Fellowship Bible Church

Fellowship Bible Church

This Contemporary Church hired WYK Associates, Inc. to develop a program and schematic design to meet the church’s growing needs.

The addition will add a very unique Worship Space to accommodate 500 persons. The support spaces include a large gathering hall, classrooms, offices, nurseries and ADA restrooms as well as an elevator. The space allocations in the existing building were also reconfigured to maximize its efficiency for use of space.

The site allows for the addition to be nestled into the side of the hill which allows for on-grade entrances at both the ground and first floor. The ground floor houses office and educational spaces while the first floor houses the worship and youth activity functions.

The design criteria for this addition was to provide an abundance of natural daylight into the Worship Space as well as keep a residential feel and scale to the building. Material selection was also imperative to minimize long term maintenance costs for both interior and exterior alike.
