Due to the steep topography and desired views, the new church campus is located at the highest point on the site. The existing house on the property will be demolished to improve overall campus connectivity and accommodate future expansion.
The new buildings are arranged along the site ridge, offering views of nature within the site and beyond while maintaining high visibility towards the road. An outdoor deck was created between the church and the parish hall which is both a gathering area and lookout for available views.
