"Visual Listening" – Redeemer
(Partner with Urban Works)
Located in north Minneapolis, this congregation wanted to explore the possibility of developing mixed income family housing adjacent to their church. As part of their outreach efforts to this community, space for their ongoing youth ministries was also to be expanded. We started with visual listening sessions with the congregation to view imagery on site design, landscaping, massing and architectural features. These sessions captured desired outcomes toward shaping a project vision. Meetings with church staff, ministry leaders and development team further shaped a multiple phase project that could serve as an inspiration to the neighborhood for economic vitality as well as social and spiritual nourishment.
