Entry Description

This Youth Center serves as a place for teens to meet, congregate and worship together. . They wanted something high-energy, easy to navigate, was a magnet to the students and would appeal so much that the teens could enjoy a space to call their own - like no other - on the church campus. The hope of the Youth Pastor was to create a space so enticing they would enjoy spending their time on campus and not ask to go to local favorites like Starbucks and Barnes & Noble. Long corridors had been a problem in the past. A WELCOMING atmosphere is apparent from the moment teens walk in the door. Easy wayfinding prevents anyone from being overwhelmed: teens literally follow their group name color and a line will lead them to where they need to go.
