Chapin Presbyterian Church
Having outgrown its previous facilities, this young church commissioned LS3P to provide master planning services and design its first phase of construction. Phase I is a 2-story building featuring a 600-seat sanctuary, fellowship space, and education space. Future phases will expand the sanctuary to 1,200 seats.
The design of the common spaces incorporates a Main Street concourse concept, with second-floor balconies overlooking these gathering areas. Support spaces such as the kitchen and restrooms are located along the edge of the building to maintain flexibility for the program spaces. The design reflects the character of the heavily wooded 14.7-acre site.
