Middle Collegiate Church

New York City ● Collegiate Church Corporation

The Collegiate Church in Manhattan’s East Village needed more space for its spiritual, educational and social programs.

Rosen Johnson Architects presented analyses and schematics for several alternatives showing where expansion could occur on the constrained site.

The single-story Fellowship Hall at the center of the site would be demolished to make way for an expanded sanctuary and new core serving a reconstructed Church House with all new facilities. The addition of a fifth floor provides a conference center.

The facade of the Church House is reconstructed and the first floor lowered to provide a welcoming street level entrance. A new elevator incorporated into the 125 year old building provides ease of access to all floors.
