The Tabernacle Church

New Multipurpose Educational Facility and Walkway Connector

The new Bishop Thomas J. Reid Building on the campus of the Tabernacle Church in Orchard Park, NY was completed in 2012. The new building serves the growing faith community as a multi-purpose learning and activity center. A contemporary design motif, with residential building characteristics, was used in order to provide the congregation with a warm and inviting user experience. Special care was taken by the design team to successfully integrate the new facilities into the existing structure, to maximize natural light, to control budget and to preserve and reuse the foundations of an existing walkway connector that was completely replaced.
