GuernseyTingle teamed with the congregation to plan long-term expansion goals.
Williamsburg Unitarian Universalists engaged GuernseyTingle to help create a long-term plan for the congregation’s mission, which brought all critical functions under one roof. Other key programmatic elements included education spaces and a future fellowship hall and support space. GuernseyTingle worked with the congregation to develop a program of spaces to guide the project’s design and conduct an assessment of existing facilities. This two-pronged study was the basis for the master plan and building design options, and provided a roadmap for future development. The overall master plan was broken into potential phases and GuernseyTingle was engaged to design the “phase one” addition, which included administrative offices, an education wing and a multi-use worship space, along with renovations to the existing gathering hall and a new commercial kitchen to support large congregational dinners.
