First Baptist Church
Client: First Baptist Church
The 117,000 square-foot First Baptist Church is sited on a 32-acre site in North Eugene. It represents the culmination of ten years of planning, design and construction and fulfills the church’s unique vision of worship, growth and community.
The design program incorporates the primary activities of worship, fellowship, education and administration. These functions are contained in the building core and four building wings that extend from the centralized foyer and auditorium spaces. The wings, of wood construction with simple gable roofs, are reminiscent of the Willamette Valley agricultural vernacular of the surrounding countryside.
