Clad in a Flemish Bond custom brick blend, the McCall Welcome Pavilion seamlessly transitions between the new and existing.
As the first impression, the design delivers the spatial quality, material selection, messaging and human connection Southern Baptist sought.
A mix of brick and concrete paver and granite slabs creates the outdoor gathering space Towery Plaza.
