Hillcrest Church in Decatur, GA had been meeting in a gymnasium for 10 years and was ready to have their own worship center to call “home” for their services. Their nursery and preschool facilities were inadequate, as well as their office space.
Croft designed a new 35,000 SF facility with an additional 10,000 SF unfinished terrace level that optimized the site topography to allow for future expansion. The worship space seats 800 initially, but planned for future capacity of 1200-1500 seats.
The balance of the facility consists of ample lobby/community space, a coffee shop/cafe, nursery/preschool, and offices.
The church desired a facility that was “inviting” and "impressive”, yet “functional” and “utilitarian”. The church has noted that Croft met the balance of all these desires in the design of their new facility.
