We’re thrilled to receive this year’s Solomon Award in Best Church Design for Youth and Children’s Spaces through a special project with Centerpoint Church in Murrieta, California.
Six years ago, we were privileged to develop Centerpoint’s state-of-the-art worship center to fulfill Phase 1 of the project. Our Envision.Design.Build team built the 750-seat auditorium, while working closely with Centerpoint to ensure maximum value under a limited budget.
A 15,000 square foot youth and administration building followed this year, combining twin venues that junior high and high school ministries use. This seamless integration of space houses youth activities and after school programs, and includes an indoor/outdoor cafe. Above the combined youth building sits the new administrative offices, creating an interesting angle of three intersecting porches.
Playgrounds, courtyards, and lounge seating surround the new cafe, filling out a pavilion that will eventually also include prayer trails and gardens. This welcoming space can be seen while driving by on Washington Avenue, just southwest of the campus, inviting all in the community to come visit, relax, and enjoy one another.
We’re grateful for the opportunity to work with Pastor John Hansen, Pastor Kim Seebach, and Centerpoint in fulfilling their vision to provide a place of safety and refuge to the city of Murrieta.
