Solomon Awards 2017 - Crosspointe Church [Visioneering Studio Architecture]

Crosspointe Church wanted community solutions, rather than just a building. At Visioneering, we were honored to partner with them in redesigning their existing space and expanding with reuse in mind. From fitness classes to afterschool programs, Crosspointe’s space and partnership with the YMCA serve the community, seven days a week.

Solomon Awards Church Building Design - Traditional and Contemporary

Nearly 100 years ago, churches were rarely just a Sunday house of worship – they were known for building hospitals, schools, universities, community centers and more than served their surrounding neighborhoods. At Visioneering, we’ve been honored to partner with many churches over the years who desire to bring some of that history back into the present with multipurpose facilities that serve the community beyond their four walls.

When we first heard that Crosspointe Church in Cary, North Carolina, was looking for community solutions rather than just a building, we couldn’t wait to come alongside.  In the “triangle” area of North Carolina between Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, population was soaring – and with it, a surge of issues among local youth.

More teenagers were getting into trouble, and more children were becoming obese at an alarming rate.  The leadership at Crosspointe wanted to provide positive resources for local youth, but knew they wouldn’t be as effective on their own. So, they began to develop partnerships with other organizations in the area, including the YMCA.  The location of Crosspointe would also be a key advantage in engaging people in the area.

Sitting at the trail head that leads down to Jordan Lake, Crosspointe’s site was a destination for anyone walking, hiking, or biking up the trail from the lake. We began to dream together – what if those people could join a Zumba or Crossfit class when they got to the church? What if youth found afterschool programs that were actually worth the walk? 

In order to provide a seven-day-a-week experience for the community, we redesigned Crosspointe’s existing spaces and expanded with reuse and activity in mind. There is a full kitchen that will be leased out by a local baker, a coffee house open daily, trails, and recreational areas throughout the campus for physical activities. Even the lobby itself was designed to house everything from exercise classes to MOPS groups.

And of course, the 650-seat gymnasium that houses Sunday worship can now additionally be used for events throughout the community.  The next step in completing Crosspointe’s updated facilities was to add additional space that would house a YMCA. The YMCA, open for membership, provides another 1,400 seats for Crosspointe’s services. The gym doubles as a worship center, complete with projection scoreboards that can turn on and off, and thus transform the room.
