Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church

Asheville, NC

This project includes an addition to Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church on one of the oldest streets in Asheville, Market Street. The original sanctuary and fellowship hall were completed in 1909. A stair tower, elevator and storage on the lowest split-level will be added.

The second level will have a connection to the existing fellowship hall level and include church classrooms, egress stairs, and an elevator. The third level will feature a connection to the existing sanctuary level and include offices, as well as washrooms, an elevator and stairs. The exterior of the building will consist primarily of brick veneer construction with standard, double-hung windows that match closely to the existing structure. The base level will be constructed from a prefinished architectural block.
