Preston Trail’s desire was to not necessarily look like a church, but to communicate a sense of community and excitement. Particular attention was given by the design team to the alignment of the interior lobby “main street” with an existing grove of trees
at the rear, allowing for a connection between outdoor and indoor space. The community space within the lobby is designed to be hospitable for young families throughout the week with a café and play area. Bold colors and materials were used at the entrances to the children’s area to attract the eye and provide anticipation and grandeur to the entrances. The 1,350 worship area is designed for flexibility, and eventually will become their dining space in the future.
