A growing church with an active and growing congregation, the First Church in Wenham engaged SV Design to help them plan the future expansion and renovation of their facilities. Dating back to 1644, the Church is currently in its fifth meetinghouse. A picturesque sanctuary located on the village green, the iconic structure is also an important community center, serving as a gathering place for community events as well as religious services. Asked to design an addition to better serve the community, SV first produced renderings, 3D models, marketing videos and more to help the Church’s fundraising efforts. Completed in Spring 2017, the newly expanded footprint preserves and honors the historic character of the existing building while providing modern, functional interior spaces for the Parish Hall, Chapel and Sunday School classrooms.
