Don and Mary Ellen Harp Student Center
Peachtree Road United Methodist Church
This thriving church in the Buckhead community continues its expansion to meet the needs of its growing, multi-generational membership.
The 51,873-SF Student Center performs as a multifunctional “home” adjacent to PRUMC’s main campus, balancing a sense of community and levels of independence and belonging. A versatile gymnasium acts as a hub for contemporary worship and can be transformed to cater to banquets and films. At the building’s core is an active lounge that permeates through the upper and lower levels, offering connectivity and an opportunity to divide the space in a unique manner.
Noteworthy: Designing spaces for multiple uses was key requirement for this active church, where a wide variety of events are scheduled throughout the day, seven days a week.
