Studio Four Design, a top architecture and design firm based in Knoxville, Tennessee, that specializes in worship facilities, was awarded a 2017 Solomon Award for design by the Worship Facilities Network for their work on the Grace Baptist Church student ministry building in Knoxville.
The announcement was made at the WFX Conference & Expo in Dallas, Oct. 11.
The award was presented in the category of Church Design – Youth and Children’s Spaces for facilities with 301 to 800 seats. The Grace Baptist Church project was begun in 2016 and completed earlier this year.
These ideas became key concepts for the design and construction team of Studio Four Design. They needed the new building to complement the transitional style and materials of the existing church campus buildings, but also to be uniquely its own to reflect the brand and identity of Grace Student Ministries.
“Expansion is a challenge for any church,” tells Stacy Cox, president of Studio Four Design. “The leadership of Grace and their Student Ministry team had a strong vision, and it was our privilege to bring that vision to life. Our team did a great job of giving the new facility a look and feel that complimented the existing church, but at the same time, we were able to give it a generational vibe to resonate with the students who would enjoy spending time in the new space.”
