FUMC Sanctuary Renovation
Project Type: Historic Preservation, Renovation
Location: Brevard, North Carolina
To accommodate First United Methodist Church’s growing choir, three rows of pews were added by moving the wall out 12 feet while leaving the existing chancel intact, resulting in very little change in appearance. The side walls were accented with high, round windows, providing natural light to a previously dark area. The remainder of the sanctuary was enhanced with new paint and flooring, along with improved lighting and a new sound system. The exterior was designed as a telescoping bay that blends seamlessly with the original building by duplicating materials and details.
