Studio RED Architects provides design services for Mims Baptist Church to be completed August 2013.
This phase of the Mims Baptist Church design project will consist of a 36,000 s.f. addition to their existing sanctuary building. The addition includes a banquet room and children’s classrooms. The banquet room will hold church-wide functions seating upwards of 600 people; the addition needed to be multi-functional to also accommodate bible study classes for senior adults, Wednesday night meal and children’s activities, as well as wedding receptions and other community events. The new facility will also give the Mims Baptist Church staff expanded additional administrative space.
“The banquet room has an important link to the sanctuary building because it provides an atmosphere of community for fellowship and other church functions,” said Micah Simecek, project architect at the award-winning architecture firm.
Once the new addition is complete, the Mims Baptist Church and Studio RED Architects will begin work on a 50,000 s.f. renovation of the existing fellowship building. The renovation to the building will accommodate the junior high and high school students as well as young adult classrooms.
“Our experience in designing and renovating worship facilities has enabled us to have an unmatched level of understanding to our church clients,” said Studio RED Architects partner Pete Ed Garrett. “By listening to the client and researching the culture of the church, we can create a strategy that will support the ministries and the growth.” Partner Pete Ed Garrett, AIA has over 28 years of award-winning architecture and design experience in the religious, university, public and private sector with an emphasis in entertainment, performing arts centers and public assembly facilities.
