Archangel Gabriel Orthodox Church
Acme, MI

Cornwell Architects was asked to provide an alternate design to an original concept design, which was a modern interpretation of a Greek Orthodox Church, due to expense considerations.  Cornwell’s design represented a traditional form utilizing a “cross” format to organize the floor plan and a signature domed roof.  Cornwell Architects worked closely with the church’s building committee on a phased project schedule that provided opportunities for the congregation to perform some of the work themselves.

Phase 1 of the church project included a 4,300 square foot sanctuary with seating capacity of 200 and a 2,200 square foot multi-purpose space for business operations and fellowship gatherings. The project design allows for a phase 2 expansion with the addition of a large 200 seat fellowship hall with an office classroom wing.
