DESCRIPTION

Van Winkle’s fourth project on the historic North Avenue Presbyterian Church included re-imagining the building’s entryways and the complete refurbishment of the church’s existing buildings: the original sanctuary, a three-story building built in the 1960s, and a four-story building from the 1920s. The project unifies the existing space and completely modernizes the historic sanctuary while preserving the building’s classic architecture and visual presence.

FEATURES

Overlook and Hospitality Hall

Upon entry, the new Overlook and Hospitality Hall greets churchgoers and visitors prior to service in the renovated 1920s sanctuary. A new elevator connects the addition to the underground levels of the renovated structure, including the children’s education center and underground parking entrance.

Education and Administrative Wing

The refurbished 1960s education and administrative wing includes classrooms for adults and children, offices, and circulation. The children’s education center connects to the church’s underground parking.

CHALLENGES

This project, located in the high-traffic center of Atlanta, required careful management and attention. Van Winkle worked with the City of Atlanta and nearby construction sites to ensure not only the public’s safety, but the expedient storage and security of onsite equipment, including cranes.
