Church Plan G1: The Box

How does one design the simplest box-shaped church plan to be attractive and contemporary? The Box is the simplest church plan, but by cutting out an angled 2-story atrium, it creates a cost-effective and functional building that is also great for today’s ministry. The atrium cuts into the core of the building to add a lot of natural light, interesting features, and attractive hang-out spaces. There is a coffee bar/fireside area on the main floor and second floor hang-out bridge/balcony. The wedge shaped atrium also extends out the main entry as an dynamic covered patio that welcomes members with excitement.

  • A simple box-shaped church plan so it is cost-effective and functional
  • A cut-out angled two-story atrium singularly turns boring into attractive and contemporary architecture
  • An angled covered entry patio extends fellowship space out the main entry
  • 20,200 total square feet
  • 500-seat auditorium
  • Meeting and classroom space for over 300 people. Three classrooms on the main level are adjacent to the playground
  • 7 offices
  • 2 kitchens
  • Plenty of hang-out space including a fireside/coffee bar and 2nd story balcony/bridge
