Union Church of Hinsdale
The need for expanded space for Christian education programs presented a daunting challenge to Union Church. Inefficient circulation, inflexible design of past additions and stringent zoning regulations demanded a comprehensive review of existing facilities, thoughtful assessment of space needs and investigation of alternative schemes for renovation and addition. The selected scheme involved demolition of previous additions and construction of an efficient 25,500 square foot building for Christian education and day care. The addition also presented an opportunity for a new entry and drop-off, accessibility to all levels of the existing church and increased parking.
