National Wesleyan Church and Annex Building
6324 Riggs, Road, Hyattsville, Maryland

Architects At Work Inc. completed the Facility Study to address building needs, new mission goals, and facility expansion plans in a CONCEPT PROPOSAL which proved popular and quickly became capable of funding. The architecture/engineering team are now preparing a package of Construction Documents to obtain Prince Georges County construction permits.

Prior to assembling the Construction Documents package the architect and the Building Committee arranged a “Preliminary Plan Design Meeting” with the County Code officials. This allowed the main issues pertaining to OCCUPANCY CERTIFICATES, code compliance problems, Dept of Health complaints, and Americans with Disabilities upgrades to be successfully addressed. As an existing building it certainly held complications to code compliance and this process solved all new scope needs.

The new Lobby is to be a gathering space with high ceilings in a framed border around a dramatic central skylight. The one side of this gathering space is developed as a coffee/beverage sitting area with not only is equipped with tables and chairs, but also with comfortable sofa seating.

The Annex Building is being changed on the entire main floor to become a Children’s Church with classrooms and a main assembly room. The hallways have fun mini-storefronts to feature movie theatre marquis, olde time store delicatessen, sweet shop, beauty shop, and rail station motif to give the youth their own village of spaces.
