Construction has been completed on an addition and renovation to the youth educational space at Concord Missionary Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas. KAI provided architecture, interior design and MEP engineering services on the project.
KAI’s team provided a re-imagined, modern design for an existing 15,000-square-foot space for youth education, plus designed a 1,347-square-foot addition.
The addition provides an energetic space for teens to gather and hang out while their parents are in other services at the church. KAI Senior Interior Designer Terry Crotty says the addition is well connected to the outside patio through windows and overhead garage doors that can be opened to integrate the interior and exterior spaces. The addition also features vibrant, contemporary furniture, fabric and carpet tile, plus an exposed structure ceiling displaying wood plank “clouds” with integrated lighting.
Adjacent to the Concord Missionary Baptist Church addition, KAI also designed renovations to an existing auditorium and worship space for youth of all ages that features an impressive stage for fellowship and music.
“We worked very closely with the church’s youth ministry to transform their vision of holistic empowerment of the entire person into a viable design that encourages all stages of youth development and spiritual growth,” said KAI President Darren James.
