Freedom House ChurchCharlotte, NC This addition and renovation to Charlotte’s Freedom House Church greatly expanded the congregation’s education, children’s, and gathering spaces. The new design converted classrooms and an undersized foyer into a resource center/bookstore, café, and larger lobby for fellowship before and after the worship service. A vibrant new children’s wing addition provides educational space for nursery, children’s, and youth programs. Bright colors, dynamic flooring, and unique signage help with wayfinding for children and parents alike. Throughout the design, wood details provide a warm, rustic aesthetic which is combines modern elements and a timeless materials palette of stone, steel, polished concrete, and rough-hewn wood finishes.
