Lake Pointe Church Forney
Forney, Texas31,000 SFBeck – Architecture, Master Planning, Interior Design
Lake Pointe Church is one of the largest and fastest growing churches in America, with a key part of its strategy being a multisite approach. For its growing congregation in the Dallas suburb of Forney, Lake Pointe chose Beck to design its first permanent location. Beck’s design focused on transparency, ease of use, flexibility and warmth to support the church’s ability to reach, grow and serve the community. The 31,000 SF building provides open, light-filled spaces connecting a 400 seat Worship room (expandable to 650 seats), Children’s and Student’s auditoriums and classrooms, anchored by a dramatic glass-enclosed Commons that faces the street. Building materials carried the ideas of authenticity – with brick, reclaimed wood and exposed structure, including a dramatic image of the Cross in the Commons created from plates of weathering steel.
