Designing worship facility to meet green construction goals
Austin, TX, USA
Austin Ridge 2,500-Seat Worship Center
Due to Austin Ridge Bible Church’s rapid growth, it was necessary to create additional space. In keeping with their values, the tri-level building includes a 2,500-seat sanctuary designed with green construction practices. Seating layouts were designed to enhance a sense of community and maximize communication. High-energy praise music is controlled through the acoustic design without dampening congregational worship. Three large LED screens were designed to provide a visual canvas for the stage, along with a large complement of color-changing LED theatrical lighting. The production suite downstairs includes dedicated spaces for technical production and meetings, while a separate recording suite allows the creative team to compose and record music in an acoustically crafted environment.
