WDM’s latest architectural project, Ridgepoint Church’s addition and renovation, is designed to seamlessly blend form and function.
Our architectural approach emphasizes practicality and adaptability, ensuring that the beautiful space caters to a variety of needs.
In 2007, First Mennonite Brethren Church was bursting at the seams and engaged WDM to design an 800-seat Worship Center addition. The addition met their needs for a larger auditorium and granted the church a stronger visual presence along the City’s main artery of West 21st.
In 2018 church leadership once again entrusted WDM the next phase of their growing campus. With the goal to better connect with the next generation, the plan was to create a new Kids Wing, add a new student center, add a new gym, and completely renovate nearly every area in the church. The main Worship Center and lobby were the only spaces left untouched.
Before these recent additions, the church also had previous building expansion projects before 2007. Since they were pieced together over time, these various portions of the building were fairly disjointed and confusing for guests. WDM took those concerns and created a much more seamless space into a single design that allowed for much smoother traffic flow.
As the massive project was nearing construction in 2019, church leaders also made the decision to change the name and completely rebrand themselves with the new name Ridgepoint Church. New signage and environmental graphics were then designed by Little Mountain to communicate the brand throughout the new spaces. WDM interior designers collaborated with Little Mountain and Ridgepoint leadership to rework finish selections to harmonize with their new brand image. The results are a beautiful harmony of fresh colors and energetic textures against a backdrop of contemporary grays.
