Phase I: W2A provided Architectural services for expansion of the Church Narthex and addition of a canopy (Porte Cochere) covering a portion of the existing driveway and sidewalk.Phase II: W2A provided design for the expansion of the existing Nave by 371 seats for a total capacity of 1,069. The interior character of the Nave was maintained. However, a new Reredos wall combined with new materials, finishes and colors lightens the overall appearance of the Nave and provides a feeling of greater spaciousness.
The Choir Loft was relocated to be adjacent to the sanctuary and a “bandshell” form of rear walls allows for maximum sound projection into the nave.
The Cry Room is located close to the toilet rooms, and is accessible directly from the Narthex with clear glass vision panels into the Nave.
The new Sacristy has direct access to the rear Narthex as well as the rear of the Nave, thus allowing direct processional to the Sanctuary down the main aisle.
