St. Pauls Presbyterian Church.

Somerset, PA

Services: Architecture, Interior Design.

Project Narrative: St. Paul's Presbyterian Church, a well established congregation located in Somerset, commissioned the firm to conduct a feasibility study for renovation and expansion of their existing downtown location. The study, combined with a design for expansion to an adjacent parcel, led the congregation to consider other options for future expansion. A site north of the downtown area became available for the construction of a complete complex, including a new sanctuary,fellowship hall, preschool and Christian education facility.

The sanctuary features exposed timber frame trusses in the nave, with high clerestory fenestration, creating a warm, rustic environment. Stonework, featured on the exterior is reflected in the interior passageways. In addition to the building design, the communion table and pulpit were designed.
