ChristChurch Presbyterian, located at 1760 Peachtree Street in Midtown Atlanta, is set to break ground on its new sanctuary, designed by Gertler & Wente Architects with Tunnell-Spangler-Walsh & Associates (TSW) as the local architect. Unlike traditional Southern or Gothic worship facilities, the new church will feature a modern design that complements the site’s existing building and urban setting.
The new sanctuary is set to make a bold statement with a design that integrates modern elements with existing structures, including a historic chapel and a mid-century education building. According to Gertler & Wente Architects, the new design will be a transparent and light-filled space, with a sanctuary that can accommodate up to 800 people.
The project will include significant landscaping improvements, such as an expanded courtyard, a new columbarium, and a roof garden that will provide additional green space. The church’s design also features an elevated plaza that will provide a gathering space for the congregation and the community.
TSW’s role as the local architect includes working closely with Gertler & Wente Architects to ensure that the design meets local zoning and building codes. TSW is also involved in site planning and will oversee the project’s construction, which is set to begin in the coming months.
The new sanctuary at ChristChurch Presbyterian is poised to be a significant addition to the Midtown Atlanta community, offering a modern worship facility that celebrates the site’s history and urban setting. The project is expected to be completed in the next few years, providing the church’s congregation and the surrounding community with a unique and inspiring space for worship and community events.
