The articulation embedded in the façade creates an inside-outside relationship. The first layer is the loggia/arcade, which provides a buffer zone for people to hang out outside of the church. For maximum transparency, the lobby is treated with a grid storefront system thus allowing people to see into the space. The second layer is the lobby. Our vision at Owusu-Agyei Group was to create a space that would engage the community. To do this, we introduced a gallery so that the lobby would serve as multi-purpose space for the community and church members alike.
