Hillside United Methodist Church
TSW Architecture Studio recently explored expansion opportunities for Hillside United Methodist Church. This included conducting a thorough needs assessment and general programming for new facilities and site planning for parking. The expansion plans feature a 1,000-seat sanctuary, a gathering rotunda, a porte-cochere, and the reallocation of classrooms and meeting spaces to better meet the needs of the church. In addition to the church expansion, TSW also took on planning and design for an adjacent mixed-use development and developed shared parking scenarios. The goal of this project was to create a comprehensive and cohesive design that will accommodate the growing needs of the church and its community while also being sensitive to the surrounding area and promoting sustainable development practices. The expansion will be a great addition to the Hillside United Methodist Church and the community.
