Faith & Community — New Construction

Creating new buildings can be simultaneously exciting and daunting.  Our blended team of architects and designers partner with our client, consultants, and contractor to create a holistic design that will engage both the congregation and the surrounding community.  We work closely with each member of the team during design through construction to ensure a finished space that is both attractive and enduring.
