The geometric shapes incorporated in this building effectively recreate the Byzantine architecture typical of churches from times past, but utilize modern space frame design and materials. The space frame design accommodates unbalanced snow loading over a complex combination of roof shapes and provides 9000 square feet of column-free space. A feature of this project is the use of custom cladding with metallic faux copper paint finish which does not weather to a green verdigris patina.
