Quite excited to be asked to collaborate on the design team for a church preservation / renovation / addition project!
Here is the early story of the project beginnings, of a local hero attempting to save a piece of history in her town. I loved reading about the early dreams they had for this place!
One portion of architect Robert Swinburne‘s initial thoughts on the project during his early design work:
“This is an old church begin turned into a modern home. My approach with this design is to minimally impact the large main space of the church. … We are looking at a full height metal and glass separation from the large area of the church (from the residence addition) which will provide some acoustical changes, affect the heat distribution, lighting and provide a more intimate feeling for fewer occupants. Large sliding panels will allow this curtain wall to open up.”
A short video made by the architect leading the design team, with glimpses of what the project will become!
Further updates will be posted as it all comes together!
