Elevation Church at Blakeney
Located in the Blakeney Professional Office Park, Elevation Blakeney is a 35,000 SF, 2-story church housing a state-of-the-art 1,050 seat performing arts venue. The church’s design strategy focused on maintaining a conventional office structural grid in the event of a future conversion to office tenants, adapting to the existing office park vernacular while enhancing the worship experience. The removal of 12,000 SF of the second floor slab allowed the construction of stadium seating for the performing arts space. Along with the 1,050-seat performing arts venue, this facility also houses an audio/video production suite, 2 children’s theaters, infant through 5th grade classrooms, and a central grand lobby with children’s check-in.
The exterior uses brick veneer, composite metal panel, EIFS and aluminum frame storefront, and curtainwall. Shared parking within the office development accommodates the building’s intense demand, while reducing the necessary land acreage.
