First Baptist Church of Scottsdale
Client: First Baptist Church of Scottsdale
Location: Scottsdale, Arizona
The renovation and redevelopment of the existing First Baptist Church of Scottsdale campus create a friendly and inviting environment. Existing facilities were improved, while older, out-of-date buildings were replaced with larger ones to better accommodate the programmatic needs of the church. The long-range plan replaces all existing buildings with the exception of the sanctuary and chapel. Phase 1 improved the existing facilities by remodeling the existing worship center, adding a new adult classroom and rehearsal area. A new 2,217 SF café, along the campus edge, provides a comfortable “third place” while connecting the church to its surrounding community.
Critical thinking – and listening to and understanding our clients – is a must when addressing the needs of any worship community. Solutions must be uniquely suited to the mission, vision, and spiritual value of each client. At Todd & Associates, we make the vision a reality for urban, rural, traditional, contemporary, large, small and emerging churches, as well as those long-established. To do this, we work closely with our clients, applying our skills in planning and design to give critical input, always taking their mission, purpose and values to heart.
