Cedar Falls Baptist Church Addition

Cedar Falls Baptist Church

Location: Fayetteville, NC
Role: Project Designer
Area: 9,228 SQ FT
Completion: 2000

*Project completed while with The LSV Partnership Architects/Planners

Cedar Falls Baptist Church approached The LSV Partnership in 1997 to ask for assistance in designing an expansion to their complex. A significant increase in their congregation size had created a need to expand their classroom facilities. Additionally, the deacons and pastor desired to have an additional conference room and expanded administration offices for the church staff.

After several meetings a determination was made to go forth with an expansion that was bounded by the existing cemetery, loop access road and adjacent creek and wooded area. As part of the new design several historic trees were saved while also providing another more convenient entrance for both handicapped and elderly church members. The overall character of the church was maintained in the new addition through the use of similar building materials and details.
