KR Architecture & Interiors (www.krarch.com), an Abington-based architectural firm which served as architectural design firm for the design of Calvary Light Church, said that the building at 204 Brockton Ave., Abington is completed and will be opening for worship services this month.
Krista Manna, owner of KR Architecture and Interiors, said that the church has received its official Certificate of Occupancy and will open officially on July 31.
The 1,560-square foot, single-story building previously served as a real estate office. Under the direction of Manna, the church sought a change in use occupancy from business to “assembly space,” which required incorporating some additional Americans With Disability Act exits, and three additional bathrooms. Also the design includes a new welcome center.
According to Manna, there were some interesting facets to the design.
“The building was not originally designed as a church,” she said. Additional features include opening up the space, the addition of a small platform for the pastor and other speakers, specific seating to accommodate a congregation, and an AV booth for lighting control.”
