A permanent home for a thriving worship community.
Throughout its 75 year history, Cornerstone University had been holding chapel services in temporary locations, lacking a permanent place to call home. While intended to serve as a communal place of gathering for worship, the new building also needed to be flexible for adapting both to use for a variety of functions as well as adapting to changing technology in the future. The design of the chapel serves to conceal the building’s infrastructure so that no visual can interfere with worship. The 1,500 seat open structure is distinctive in its “in the round” style, which de-emphasizes the perceived front of the chapel and adds to the flexibility of what can take place at the center.
