Conceptual Elevations of The Retreat - Cabin Architecture

masterplan – calvery christian church

Calvery Christian Church purchased a fifty acre plot of land with the intent of moving from their existing facility to a new worship space.

They would convert their existing space to be completely devoted to their public school, some thing that is lacking in the surrounding area.

The new land would start off with outdoor recreation spaces, a lake, pavilions, and trail system accessible to and used by the general public.

The pavilions would be used for spiritual activities, weddings, or community fun. Eventually a new worship center and chapel would be built.

GMH By Design believes that a projects context is as important as any of the clients needs. This means each and every one of our projects takes the location of the project into consideration; local as well as the actual property itself.

GMH By Design is all about the comfort of our clients with the final project. For most, a remodel, addition, or new building will be one of the most expensive purchases they make. In the case of The Retreat, the client wanted to double the size of the original cabin while at the same time maintaining the feel of a secluded cabin.

The definition of retreat is a place of privacy or safety. The intent of GMH By Design when designing The Retreat was to provide just that a place for the client to rest, relax, and enjoy their privacy in a safe comfortable place.
