Countryside Community Church
A Space that Reflects a Mission of Unity
After extensive conversations with congregants and staff, APMA created construction documents and designed the interior spaces of this unique church, part of the Tri-Faith Initiative, a project that unites a synagogue, church, mosque, and interfaith center on one 38-acre campus. The client’s aspiration to be one of the “greenest churches in the country” impacted several design decisions, including use of natural materials, high performing building systems, enhanced envelope insulation, plenty of opportunities for natural light, and a solar-ready infrastructure.
