Rancho Santa Fe-based church redesigns education center

on Tuesday,September 07,2010 21:09


In Rancho Santa Fe, California the Village Community Presbyterian Church is currently working on a new education building. The Kids Village original structure, which was built in the 1960s, is being redesigned by domusstudio architecture to integrate the church's recently completed sanctuary.

The Kids Village will incorporate new energy-efficient windows, lighting and mechanical systems, while remaining a fun learning environment. Bright colors will blend with more traditional building materials found in the Spanish-style architecture.

"The old building was totally gutted to the studs, then we added insulation, new windows, a new roof and new walls that better reconfigure the space to meet the church's needs," said David Keitel, domusstudio architecture associate. "For example, the nursery room is much closer to the sanctuary now. This makes it easier for parents dropping off children before services and psychologically keeps them close."

Built by ROEL Construction Company, the $675,000 remodel will have five classrooms, a workroom and a new nursery.

Those who wish to pursue a career in architecture may benefit from following the construction of new buildings. Students in this field who are enrolled in art school may gain inspiration from seeing the construction process from start to finish.
