We design facilities that enlighten and enrich lives by providing an inviting and peaceful space for worship.
Foothills Baptist Church in Ahwatukee, Arizona commissioned Hunt & Caraway Architects to update their Master Site Plan and develop concept design for the continued development of their 5.6 acre campus. The site design optimizes parking, fully landscaped and includes a pre-school playground. The site “build-out” included Worship Center, Multipurpose Room, Preschool, Church Office, and a Children’s Ministry Building.
This plan included a 500 seat Worship Center with a platform to accommodate a 100 voice choir and 23 piece orchestra, and features 19 foot rear screen projection, lighting control booth with follow spots and a ground floor sound control area.
Immediately adjacent is a music suite for practice, instrument and music storage. This 29,500 s.f. building also includes a multipurpose room with seating at tables for 400, and a pre-school with 10 classrooms for 150 students.
Two story recreation center inclusive of athletic amenities, classrooms, offices, café and game room. Program components included full size basketball court, handball courts, weight & circuit training rooms, aerobics room, jog track, locker rooms with dry saunas and roller rink.
This facility has become an active community center for public use by surrounding neighborhoods. Continual annual events and daily use speak highly of the functionalism and quality of the design.
