The next step was to start sketching ideas of how to best use the space.
We needed to ask: What should the space feel like? How could the space be used by the community in other ways? How can the space best honor our kids? Could we create a space that would benefit the community outside of Sunday morning experiences? How do we make sure we are fully handicap accessible in every way? Could we make a room right off the meeting room with one way glass for families with infants so they can still feel close? Can we take advantage of natural light from windows?
