Ridgewood Park United Methodist Church - Dallas, TX


Project Description:

Ridgewood Park UMC has experienced a dramatic increase in membership in the last few years. Struggling with overcrowding and an antiquated existing facility, the congregation was in need of a larger sanctuary and renovation of their existing facilities. It was important for the design of the new sanctuary to be prominent and inviting from the main street, and that the existing buildings be integrated into the new building's master plan. Organized as an octagon in plan, the sanctuary is designed to accommodate 350 worshippers in fixed pews with another 50 seated in the choir. The soaring ceiling is in the form of a cross that expresses itself on the exterior of the building. This prominent roof form is visible from the street reinforcing the image of the church as a place of worship and gathering.
