2|42 Community Church 

Brighton, Michigan

Hobbs+Black Architects designed a renovation and addition to the rapidly growing 2|42 non-denominational community church located on Grand River Road in Brighton, Michigan. The congregation has been growing exponentially. The clients vision of combining a community center and church was ideal for the Brighton area. As a result of the continued success the design increased the auditorium seating by 30%, parking by 25%, youth areas by 50%, and supplemented the café with new equipment. The facility is occupied throughout the week with youth activities, meetings, birthday parties, and more. The local school district rents the indoor athletic field for soccer and lacrosse practices. The café was strategically located to provide community access throughout the week. Because the facility was so heavily used, it was necessary to phase the project during construction for a seamless renovation and addition.
