Christ Church of Grove Farm’s new campus is located on the site of a former farm. In order to maintain the farm typology of its rural environment, the 1850’s farmhouse was converted into administration offices, the old barn was transformed into an education building and the new church was designed using a pre-engineered metal building. Interestingly, Desmone’ program solution involved designing the church so that it could later be converted into a gymnasium. This solution allowed the new congregation to meet all of their functional needs within budget while at the same time plan for a cost-effective future expansion.
