Immanuel Lutheran Church of Washington

New Sanctuary

The project consists of a new Sanctuary building with a Choir Loft. The new building has a finished basement and the existing historic Sanctuary was renovated into a Fellowship Hall. A new south entry with Porte Cochere leads into a new Narthex. The new addition increases the seating capacity by two and a half times.

The exterior masonry detailing includes brick corbeling and dentils, spires, and limestone trim to blend the new architecture with the original 1882 church building. New aluminum window frames are sized to accept the existing art glass from the original church, and a new rose window above the Chancel elegantly compliments them.

A new pipe organ in the Choir Loft and custom Sanctuary lighting complete this traditionally designed church building.


You brought important organizational skills to the process. You listened carefully to what we said we wanted, pointed us elsewhere when we were off track, documented everything well, and were incredibly patient with our rather large committee. You finished your work on the time schedule we set at the beginning of the design work.
