Allentown Presbyterian Church
New Addition
Allentown, New Jersey

Size: 22,500 sf
Schedule: Completed 2007

The challenge of this project was how to accommodate a large addition in a historic district.

Growth and demand necessitated an expansion of the client’s program. The new addition houses administrative offices for the church and school, classrooms for religious education and a day school.

To ameliorate the impact of the three-storey addition on the historic district, the building is nestled into the site, resulting in a two-story exposure along the historic view shed. The addition is constructed of molded brick of a type and color that is compatible with the existing 1850s Federal Style church.
