First Universalist Unitarian

First Universalist Unitarian

Wausau, WI

11,100 sf addition & 11,500 remodeling (new atrium/fellowship, 2 story classroom & office addition, added elevator, historically correct façade, outdoor connectivity, oneness with nature)

The Church’s primary objective was replacing an antiquated educational wing while at the same time designing a new space to easily accommodate Sunday morning traffic flow needing to move from off street parking to the new atrium/fellowship area adjacent to the existing Sanctuary. A major challenge lied in connecting 5 existing and or new floor levels with one (2) sided elevator that needed to be strategically located. Existing masonry detailing was matched to blend new and old portions of the facility together.
