Southside Church is a multi-site congregation just south of Atlanta. In 2016, the church engaged Equip Studio to discuss an addition/renovation project at their Newnan campus. The facility had become inadequate in meeting their ministry’s needs as it continued to flourish in aspects of their ministry. We proposed a concept that would give the campus a new primary worship space and lobby (creating a new “front door”) and renovate the existing worship center for the students.
The design includes a new auditorium expansion along with a new, spacious lobby that connects the new worship space to an expanded children’s ministry space and check-in area. As a fellowship-focused church, the new lobby space includes several meeting rooms off the main atrium that help to facilitate community/gathering. In addition to new construction, a renovation of the campus’s existing worship auditorium was retrofitted just for Southside’s youth ministry. As a result of creating more space for people, we also expanded parking to accommodate this added campus capacity.
Equip Studio supported this project through design only. Construction Documents and Contract Administration were provided by the Architect of Record: Jefferson Browne.
