NewSpring Community Church, Children’s Education Building
Connecting to the existing church sanctuary in Anderson, SC, this 50,000 SF building was designed to provide a secure and easily accessible location for children from Kindergarten through 5th Grade. Using three age divisions, the program called for a theater for plays and productions, along with a traditional classroom for each age group, all connected by a two-story corridor. The spaces are creative, yet use a low technology approach to encourage imaginative learning and areas for acting, puppet plays, and storytelling. Specialized lighting and biblical themes bring energy and interest to an active age group. A second floor provides both open and private office space, as well as conference capabilities for the church’s youth staff.
