canyon creek prysbyterian church

During the summer of 2002 I worked for James E. Langford as an intern architect. A lot of the work that his firm was doing at the time was ecclesiastical and I was fortunate enough to work on the construction documentation phase of the Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church. The building, while modern, is based on classical proportional design elements.

A cantilever portion of the building provides shelter for people being dropped off by automobile.

The steeple is central to the design of the church and is also the main structural component of the auditorium.

Light is used to direct the focus upward.

The roof fans out from the steeple like an umbrella.
