Hope Lutheran Church

Farmington, MN

Hope Lutheran’s congregation needed a new home and, during planning, one sentiment was made clear: they didn’t want their “parents’ church.” The resulting modern design comprises a 200-seat sanctuary, narthex, kitchen, classrooms, offices, and conference area and is tailored to the community-based church. Natural light floods the interior and offers the advantage of efficient, passive solar heating. The design incorporates a custom steel ichthus (fish/cross) and a mix of exterior colors and textures to create a modern church.
