The St. Martin's congregation asked TeamFour to assess their space
requirements and determine the amount of additional space needed to accommodate new
classrooms, office space and a large fellowship hall for their growing congregation.
TeamFour's facility plan for the church included a program of space and equipment needs for
the renovation and expansion. The objective was to solve problems of crowding, inefficient
space use and high operating costs as we prepared the preliminary design for the new
addition. The church was provided with alternative approaches to achieve its goals, each
with the associated construction costs.
Fellowship Hall Addition & Renovation
As a result of TeamFour's plan, St. Martin's decided to build the Fellowship Hall, which
TeamFour also designed. The project included a 4,000 square foot clear span meeting space
with a high ceiling. It is placed within the church complex to unify different parts of the
worship, fellowship, and education areas.
The room is designed to serve both small and large groups through the use of movable
partitions which are arried on ceiling tracks and store in wall recesses. In both function and
appearance, the addition ties the parts of the existing building together. It also provides a new
image and a new front entrance to the church complex.
