Watts Chapel Missionary Baptist Church
Watts Chapel Missionary Baptist Church has been a cornerstone of the community since 1876. To address the increase of new members, new programs were incorporated into the existing site. This program will include a new sanctuary with increased capacity for worshipers, an education facility with expanded classrooms and office space as well as amenity spaces that serve the needs of the church and the community. The design of the building takes full advantage of natural daylight in the new spaces, and the formal qualities of the church such as building massing, organization, and materiality create a strong visual presence on the site.
