Austin Ridge Bible Church | Building D
With the desire to keep worship environments intimate, ARBC leadership made the decision to construct a new, smaller Worship Venue and move toward a multi-site church model with live streaming HD video to the existing Sanctuary on site. The challenging task was to utilize economical pre-engineered metal building structures in creative ways, through how the buildings are finished, how they interact with each other, and with the natural landscape of the site.
A refined, contemporary, rural aesthetic marries traditional limestone elements from the existing church building to a new vocabulary of metal siding, wood slats, and large bays of glass. Each building welcomes visitors with a long porch to shelter against the elements.
