First United Methodist Church
Although the worship areas of this church remained adequate for the congregation, there was a need for additional classroom space. Being located at the intersection of two busy city streets limited the options for expansion, so we started with a planning study. We uncovered an opportunity for them to repurpose a small adjacent property, which allowed us to reorganize the interior, improve functionality, enhance main entrances for their diverse range of worship services, and preserve the character of the original architecture.
Preserving the distinctive architectural style during the renovations and expansion was of foremost importance. The familiar facade remains an unchanged focal point at this busy city intersection.
