Danville, KY

22,000 s.f. Renovation + 11,000 s.f. Addition – Completed 1994


The scope of the project was to renovate the existing 22,500 SF facility and construct a new 11,000 SF addition to the original Church built in 1830. The existing building had been renovated numerous times over the years. While the exterior of the church displays neo-gothic characteristics, the interior of the sanctuary was modernized in the 1970’s. The renovation of the existing building included all new mechanical and electrical systems, new interior finishes and complete renovation of the sanctuary interior, including new wood flooring, new wall paneling and trimwork, a new vaulted ceiling, balcony railing, and slate flooring in the Narthex. The Church also replaced the pulpit and pews. The building addition includes a Fellowship Hall with a full kitchen, Youth Activities Room, new Church Offices, elevator and new accessible restrooms. The space between the existing building and the new addition creates a courtyard, accessible from the existing building at the Chapel and from the Fellowship Hall and Sanctuary lobby of the new addition. The goal was to create an addition that would be respectful of the historical structure by utilizing similar proportions and materials.
