fourth memorial church
Location: Spokane, WA
Square Footage: 7,000
Spokane's Fourth Memorial Church, formed in 1902, has a rich history and its congregation continues to serve the people in the community and the world. Design Source was enlisted to help solve the acoustic issues created by the massive volume of the space, resolve traffic flow issues as well as update 25 year old finishes.
The design solution objective was to appeal to multiple generations as their congregation is diverse and the space needed to be functional for the hundreds of Moody Bible Institute students who actively used the space.
The church's front lobby has undergone a dramatic remodel and their large network of world missionaries is now visually depicted with a metal map added to the transformed entrance to the sanctuary where congregants can visualize and gather more information on the people and families that they support overseas.
