Grace Lutheran Church

Grace Lutheran Church of Seward, Nebraska engaged the skills of Sinclair Hille Architects for the design of a new 8,500 SF worship facility.  In response to the Congregations’ request for a timeless design, Sinclair Hille developed a traditional exterior facade with an arched colonnade entry, gothic-shaped windows and entry, and gable roof lines with parapet accents. The building is a wood-framed structure with a brick face/ precast veneer. Colored split-faced concrete block features were integrated with the precast accents to create a very low maintenance exterior skin.

The new facility provides worship space, gathering / vestibule space, offices, classrooms, kitchen, and fellowship hall. The sanctuary includes a centralized lighting control system, exposed tongue and grove wood ceiling decking, and exposed stained concrete floors.


The design team from Sinclair Hille were sensitive to the unique needs of our business model and incorporated our requests within the overall design of our branch facility, a facility that was built not only for the needs of the bank branch today, but, also, with flexibility for what future demands might be.  We are extremely happy with the end product and appreciate the professionalism and attention to detail of the team from Sinclair Hille Architects.
