Two Rivers Church - "The Shed" Youth Building
Building Area: 3,300 s.f.
Date of Completion: 2005
Type: New Construction
Location: Lenoir City, TN
Challenge: Design an economic church youth building with a growing membership that fits with their message.
Solution: The design revolves around an inexpensive pre-engineered metal building structure and is clad in durable fiber cement siding. The interior is clad in "kid appropriate" plywood for maximum abuse resistant. We used the vernacular of East Tennessee barn architecture as the inspiration for the design, which we felt was appropriate given the "barn revival" types of activities taking place within.
