On an urban site near downtown Naperville, IL Our Saviour’s Celebration! Community Life Center combines traditional and modern elements in a rich palette of materials. A master plan was completed for the 36,000 sq. ft. center that included civil engineering and stormwater analysis as well as architectural and landscape design. The Phase 1 Design provides spiritual, educational, and recreational opportunities for a growing congregation whose church sanctuary is located two blocks north. Anchored by a glassy welcome center, the new building also houses classroom, meeting and office space. The centerpiece of the light-filled structure is a 7,000 sq. ft. gymnatorium that can accommodate sports, dramatic productions, worship for 650, and banquets for 500. The facility is served by dressing rooms and a full service kitchen. The stage end of the gymnatorium opens to an outdoor amphitheater within a generous south facing courtyard.
