A local church gives new life to a building that had stood abandoned, now it is a pillar and beacon in the community. When this local church sought to renovate a grocery store that sat vacant for years, they embraced the space and opportunity with open arms. What was once run down and abandoned now stands as an outreach in the community. Large expansive space was divided seamlessly into a large auditorium, a children’s program wing, offices, and a trendy coffee bar. A central fireplace became a focal point that is both practical and fitting of the industrial feel of the space. Unique use of materials, playful soffits and industrial finishes keep the space inviting and fresh.
