11,000 sqft | Shreveport, LA| 1986
SGB was tasked to develop plans for a new 400 seat sanctuary, office, choir room, parlor and narthex for a devoted west Shreveport congregation. The major design consideration was to harmonize with the existing contemporary facilities but allow the sanctuary to be distinct. Harmony in the 11,000 square foot facility was achieved by use of materials and colors common to the existing complex, similar roof slopes and window types. To distinguish the sanctuary, we turned it at a 45-degree angle to create bold massing, and added a single circular, stained glass window above the altar.
