A new youth/education building was dedicated recently at the San Carlos United Methodist Church in San Diego. The project represents Phase 1A of a multi-phase master plan designed by church architects domusstudio architecture, according to Wayne Holtan, a principal at domusstudio. The general contractor was Zigman/Shields General Contractors, Inc.
The next phase of the master plan at San Carlos United Methodist Church will be an addition to the just-completed single-story youth/education building, replacing the church’s existing preschool building. Timing for the addition, as well as other phases, will be announced as needed by the growing ministry and services of the church.
The 1,600 square-foot youth/education building consists of one large room, an office, bathrooms and kitchen. The multipurpose space incorporates a courtyard area and entry porch. The education building sets the tone for the other phases in the master plan, all of which match the architectural style and earth-tone color palate of the existing sanctuary. Sustainable concepts are incorporated throughout the master plan, including the use of a non-combustible composite roofing material for the youth/education building.
