The Next Generation Center at St. John Lutheran Church in Ellisville is a three-story building addition. The lower level consists of spaces for the Children’s Sunday and Wednesday activities. The main and upper levels consist of classrooms, the library and science lab for the school.
The building is designed explicitly for the children, to nurture their spiritual growth as well as their educational and physical growth. The exterior of the building reflects the dynamic and exciting activities that take place within the building. The use of shape, pattern, color and texture create a building envelope that is fun and inviting to the children.
