Visualizing a New Home for Marysville Grace Church

M+A Architects has been hard at work designing the new home of Marysville Grace Church. Conceived as a multi-phase campus, the first portion encompasses a worship area, a gathering/social space and a number of classrooms.  Located on a pastoral site north of Marysville, Ohio, the design combines contemporary design elements with abundant natural light and warm materials along with traditional church functions and requirements.

Part of our process is to help our client 'see' the new space before it's built to ensure the entire team, from owner to subcontractor, understands the goals of the project. Our biggest challenge with 3D Visualization is not to be hyper realistic but to clearly demonstrate the warmth and light of the space.  Here are a few examples of our work from this project.  Does the space feel warm and inviting?  Tell us what you think!

This is a view of the Sanctuary from the entry into the space.
