Project Description

In the quiet suburb of Sterling Heights – just a few miles north of Detroit, Michigan – is a unique piece of grassy green property.  It will be the future home of what locals once knew as Liberty Foursquare Church – now simply – Liberty Church.

Liberty is in a truly exciting chapter of life.  Having survived from its founding in an aging building – built originally for a different church with a different style of worship – they’ve been dreaming of their own, custom-designed home for years.  And now the work has begun to make that new home a reality.

I couldn’t hope to do their work justice here by attempting to explain it – if you want to learn a little more about the remarkable work being done in the northern Detroit area – check out their website (below).

The general concept is this:  Create a place that provides the necessary space to accommodate their growing congregation, the vital services they provide (such as Daycare programs, food donation programs, and many other extra-curricular activities), and create a visually intriguing and exciting experience from the outside.

Inspired by the simple geometries and bold pops of color seen in the early/mid-century De Stijl movement – with a few nods to Corbusier, the design is meant to express feelings and concepts like peace, excitement, health, redemption, spiritual freedom, and striving for something more than just ourselves.
