Visioneering Studios kept its streak alive by being honored once again this year at the annual Worship Facilities Expo (WFX) conference held in Dallas. Today it was announced that we won multiple Solomon Awards including Best Church Architect for the fourth year in a row. Visioneering Studios also won the Solomon Award for Best Church Design Renovation (1-800 seats) for Stapleton Fellowship Church in Denver, CO, where we converted a unique and historic airplane hangar built in 1959 at the former Stapleton Airport into a church. There were some great church designs highlighted this year, and we feel proud to be playing a part nationally in launching the bar on church design by creating environments that are culturally relevant and exciting while developing community destinations that draw people.
The WFX conference is a great event for churches who are looking for information on design and construction projects, and for churches searching for the latest in audio, video, and lighting gear. I’d encourage anyone involved in church building or tech ministries to attend. In 2012 the WFX conference will be held in Atlanta and we are looking forward to being there again next year.
In addition to winning the Solomon Award for Best Church Architect four years in a row (2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011), Visioneering Studios has also won Best Overall Church Project in 2007, 2009, and 2010. Following up on wins in 2007 (Most Innovative Church Facility and Best Overall Church project for Crossroads Christian Church in Corona, CA) and 2008 (Best Church Architect for Central Christian Church in Beloit, WI), Visioneering swept the Solomon Awards in 2009. We took home awards for: Best Overall Church Project and Best Church Design (2,001+ seats) for Mariners Church in Irvine, CA; Best Church Architect and Best Church Design (801-2,000 seats) for Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC; and Best Church Design (301-800 seats) for Northside Christian Church in Spring, TX. In 2010 Visioneering Studios won awards for Best Overall Church Project for First Christian Church in Huntington Beach, CA, Best Church Design (Renovation Project, 800-2000+ Seats) for First Christian Church in Huntington Beach, CA, and Best Church Design (New Project, 1-800 Seats) for The Church at LifePark in Mt. Pleasant, SC.
If your church desires to impact your community through sites and facilities that engage the public in a culturally relevant way and you are having a hard time finding an architect that “gets you,” give us a call at Visioneering Studios and see if we are the right ministry partner for your project.
