Lombard Gospel Chapel

This congregation met on this small site for over 60 years. The worship hour was growing, but then contracting as the space became uncomfortably full. The facility demanded overdue upgrades. The building interiors were outdated and worn, and most of the church was inaccessible with 11 different levels of floors. There was no fellowship space at the entry area. CBC designed a new Hub addition that separated the vertical and horizontal circulation, provided meet and greet spaces, a new elevator, reconfigured and enlarged their worship space, and upgraded some interiors. The addition fit a tight land lot, yet did not compromise the parking. The resulting facility is both more functional and attractive.
