First United Methodist Church Addition
Indianola, Iowa

Challenge: Design an addition for this growing church that blends seamlessly with the historic architecture of the original building.

SVPA Solution: From brick selection to the re-use of "leftover" clay roof tiles, this nursery, kitchen, hospitality and fellowship spaces and classroom addition looks like it has always been a part of the original church. An added amenity is a covered drop-off for the congregation and visitors.
