FOCUS

Evangelistic Temple purchased a 15-acre tract of land located on a major loop thoroughfare for the purpose of relocation from their current facility. Requirements were worship, fellowship, education and administrative facilities with future expansion capabilities. The site consisted of open area with a high point in the middle, (approximately 25 feet above the roadway and 80 feet above adjacent properties to the rear) offering a dramatic panoramic view of treetops and city.

STRATEGY

The project was constructed as a "full plant" facility, all elements included in one building, located on the highest point of the site, offering a dramatic presentation to the street. The auditorium was designed as the focal element of the building with a 65 foot tall tower and cross, and a planned education-use conversion for future growth. A 2,500 seat auditorium is masterplanned to be placed at the rear of the existing building to take advantage of dramatic visuals offered by the unique topography, while letting the existing sanctuary tower remain as the signature element of the church.
