Mt Prospect, Illinois

The design and construction of the first new Armenian church in the Chicago area in more than three decades was a labor of love, especially for a nearly 100-year-old congregation that had been located in a renovated North Sheridan roadhouse for most of its existence. The commission represented a unique opportunity to blend old and new. We showed the client how to stretch every dollar while still creating a house of worship that would proudly serve the community’s needs well into its next century.
