Cambridge, MN – 17,200 square feet
Through all day listening our charge was to tell the story through the architecture that this would be an, “Untypical Church for Typical People,” and that it would be a community based ministry that says “Welcome.” We prioritized the church ministry when laying out the master plan of the site to accomplish a 21st century ministry with an emphasis on hospitality where by the lobby is located at the heart of the site and facility on the front side of a 21 acre site with lake views. The front side of the building is placed so that it is visible from the main approach with lake views from the lobby now and in the future. Space for future building and parking expansions are strategically planned with ministry growth in mind. Finally it creates a “Community Back Yard,” with space for picnics, volleyball, outdoor worship and gardens.
