WINNER of a 2016 AIA ST. LOUIS AWARD CITATION
After a two year design process evaluating multiple sites and various construction types, CORE10 completed drawings of a new facility for this growing Kirkwood church. The original direction was to renovate an existing retail store into a new church. After performing a space planning study, CORE10 determined that a new building would be a more economical approach and then proceeded to help the church find a vacant lot in Kirkwood.
Designed to facilitate a young congregation in a traditional community, this new building reflects the charm and character of the surrounding architecture with a clean, modern palate that matches the vibrancy of the congregation within. The inviting building reaches out with provisions for hosting many community events as part of Kirkwood Road to serve multiple uses beyond Sundays.
