WSKF was hired as part of a design build team to expand the existing sanctuary to accommodate both traditional and contemporary music programs, to improve A/V performance, acoustics and the worship experience. The original design allowed for the removal of the back wall for expansion with the intention of duplicating the existing pitch to create a gable roof and a traditional nave plan. Instead we maintained the existing orientation and focused the expansion on the creation of a flexible worship center that functionally improved the service and through the forms and materials used enhanced the spiritual connection during the service.
