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.
