A congested urban site combined with a historic building façade presented special challenges to Prochaska & Associates in developing a Facility Master Plan for the 300 member Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church and School of Omaha. Congregational priorities included increased parking, access for the disabled, new accessible toilets, an expanded narthex, a 7th and 8th grade classroom, improved office access and a multi-purpose room. Following sessions with the Building Committee, Prochaska & Associates created a three phase Master Plan that allows the congregation to address their priorities as their limited budget permits. A small two story Phase 1 addition and renovation project resolved their most pressing concerns of parking, disabled access and accessible toilets, while respecting the historic beauty of the existing church. The addition includes an elevator to reach several different floor levels within the existing building, large enough for a casket. A raised beacon of light incorporates stained glass windows displaced due to the addition, which ties the new and existing architecture and highlights the church to passing vehicles.
