CONROE CHURCH OF CHRIST
CONROE ,TX

 

FOCUS

Conroe Church of Christ purchased an approximately 20-acre tract of land for relocation. The new facility was to include worship, fellowship, education, recreation and administration space. Future expansion of all areas of the facility, including outdoor-use areas, were also a primary focus of this project.

The site is a tree-covered lot (predominately deciduous trees) located in a curve on a major four-lane thoroughfare. Prominent exposure satisfies existing needs, plans for future growth and expansion and a dramatic entrance from sidewalk and street vantage points were key considerations when designing the facility.

STRATEGY

A master plan was designed keeping in mind the need to accommodate future growth and required expansion without removing exterior walls. Therefore, the Phase I sanctuary was planned so that it would accommodate future expansion internally through pre-design of a future balcony addition thus eliminating the need for exterior expansion of the sanctuary.

The main entry of the building is located in the curve on Longmire Road offering juxtaposing street views from either direction, creating a dra matic impression. The primary exposure facades are all glass with 40-foot high ceilings and irregular glass framing and multiple-colored glass panels. This design component was incorporated to create color and shadow patterns as a backdrop on the walls opposite the glass, creating a muted color composition to draw the eye from the exterior to the interior when approaching the building. These impressions, created by light and shadow, are kinetic as the sun changes position, creating an ever-changing pattern, presence and image.
