First Baptist Church
Starting with a previously approved exterior design for a new sanctuary addition, DLA was asked to take over the project, review the proposed design and suggest necessary changes to improve functionality and meet the church's budget for the project.
DLA's redesign resulted in a 20,000 sq. ft. sanctuary building with 1,000 seats on the main floor and future balcony seating for 300 to 400, all within the church's budget constraints. Nurseries, restrooms and choir spaces were also included. The new facility complemented the existing four buildings on the site and provided more effective use of available space.
