Faith Lutheran Church (1985)

The 4,200 square foot sanctuary was added to an existing parish center. Prefabricated glue-laminated beams support the steep cathedral ceiling. Reinforced concrete mat foundation compensates for the site's low soil bearing capacity and its anticipated differential settlement.

Masonic Homes (1985)

The main residential level of this apartment and nursing facility is located 50 feet below the level of the dining room which serves it. An elevator tower and pedestrian bridge were commissioned rising the necessary distance and extending 120 feet across the hillside.
