Hamburg United
Methodist Church

The proposed scheme constructs a sizable multi-purpose addition to the east of the existing structure and is connected to the existing structure with a new Narthex. By reversing the orientation of the existing Worship Space, the existing balconies become the new Chancel Area. The floor south of the Worship Space is lowered to the level of the Nave, making a new Gathering Space, Narthex, Administration, and the new Multi-Purpose Gymnasium/Fellowship Hall to be all on the same level.

The Site Plan is organized around a new entrance which faces Main Street. Additional parking is built on the recently-acquired property adjoining Main Street.

The existing Office Area is rebuilt as educational spaces for the youngest children. The upper level is reached by a new elevator, located adjacent to the Gathering Space. On the upper level is a rebuilt Class Room and Resource Center layout, which is reached by a connector in the Upper Narthex. The Adult and Youth Education Rooms are located in the Addition.

The lower level utilizes the former Fellowship Hall as the Choir Practice Rooms. The Kitchen is converted into new toilet areas for men and women. The Fire Place Room remains, with a lower ceiling. The remainder of the space beneath the Nave is to be utilized as storage space.
