Solomon Awards 2018 – Park Cities Baptist Church, Dallas (Church Design – Youth and Children’s Spaces)

Park Cities Baptist Church has been serving their community in Dallas since 1939, and their sprawling campus has grown over the years to accommodate their 10,000 members. As you might expect, the result of the expansion left the church with a maze of corridors and classrooms in their historic facility, with finishes and program spaces laid out for a different generation of children’s ministry than they now desire.

The church brought in Visioneering Studios to help reimagine a floor of their children’s ministry wing by creating an environment kid’s wouldn’t want to leave, and parents would be excited to bring their children to.

By blowing up their traditional collection of rectangular “boxes” (Sunday School classrooms) and replacing the narrow halls with a spacious prefunction check-in space and a mixture of group environments and breakout rooms the end result was a highly-textured and colorful space that is both functional, aesthetically pleasing, and cost effective. Visioneering Studios Construction completed the project utilizing the design-build delivery method, with Visioneering Studios Architecture providing the design. By minimizing demolition requirements and reusing as much of the current interior partitions and all of the existing core and shell elements, the transformation was able to be completed while the rest of the church was in operation for the duration of the project.
