Mt. Sinai Baptist Church Portsmouth, VA

Mount Sinai Church is a large sanctuary that seats approximately 400 parishioners. However, the existing building was a simple pre-engineered metal building with an exterior metal siding. The pastor at Mount Sinai Church commissioned Barnes Design Group to provide a large addition on the front side of the building that would house a new greeting space that would serve as a lobby, gathering space and social facility. It was also important that the architect provide a brand new architectural style that would be contemporary, open and inviting to the new first-time visitor. This was done with colored glass, clear glass and a curtain wall facility that opened up the entire lobby space.
