Edmond’s First Baptist church needed additions/renovations to add more classroom space, a larger fellowship hall, and a new entry element for additional parking on the back side of their existing facility. Schemmer helped Edmond’s First Baptist Church design a facility that would be flexible for multipurpose use.
The ground floor entry hall was designed using moving walls to allow this area to become additional space for the fellowship hall. The existing fellowship hall, which doubled in size with the addition and received a new kitchen, was a challenge due to the existing floor-to-floor height. The design raised the existing ceiling and minimized the above-ceiling area for mechanical systems. All the challenges of the addition and renovation were overcome through creative thinking as to how to use the space for multiple functions.
