Church Architect

Rhodes Architecture has worked with over 60 churches providing church architecture, church planning, church ministry visioning, and long term ministry planning throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and California.  Rhodes Architecture has been adding value to Christian churches through our strengths in personal commitment to ministry, practical seattle church design solutions, technical excellence, and document quality.

We are the church facilities expert.  Your project will benefit from dedicated personal leadership as well as a broader strategic partnership of church professionals serving God. 

Rhodes Architecture has a proven record of meeting tough church budget and schedule criteria.  We begin with Dreamcasting.  A long range church planning and visioning workshop based on church ministry that combines church project and ministerial goal setting, together with dynamic congregational facilitation in a workshop setting.  An original contribution to the world seattle church architecture, Dreamcasting provides the framework for future planning and church architecture.  In our experience it has been 100% successful in moving church design forward toward a church building.

Master planning provides a phased solution with budget estimates.  Church planning is critical to the long term value and church design.  Our extensive land use and permitting background will get entitlements for the project expeditiously.  Combined with our extensive design-build and fast track experience means the client gets to use a balance building quickly.  Church planning is often done in only four church leadership meeting.  Most churches have a building permit in about a year.  By defining these critical ministries and a phased, balanced solution, churches can spend less time and church design fee on redesigning construction, land use and engineering documents - enabling the washington church architect to better focus energy on critical decisions moving forward..

Our efficiency as leaders in church design, and repeatable ministry based approach bring you the highest value for your congregational trust and resources through the entire life of the master plan.  As a full-service consulting firm we believe in satisfying our clients’ expectations in a timely manner with the most cost effective solutions.  Our philosophy is to listen to the client, inform and involve concerned community leaders, be flexible in responding to changing conditions, and maintain strong commitment to the project.

As seattle church designers and seattle church architects we also produce some of the highest quality construction documents available.  With current code, the seattle church architect has far more technical life safety issues to address than in the past.  Seismic, wind, fire, and exiting are added to the church design along with the church ministry goals identified during church planning.  Rhodes exceeds most church architects in value of construction.  We are able to do this with Principal level decision making, integrated project delivery techniques (IPD), and Building Information Modeling (BIM).  IPD leverages the technical knowledge of the church design team during the early church design process.  BIM creates accurate visualization, and analysis to synthesize team process, delivery, and church design documentation.

Unlike most washington church architects, we are able to provide services and aid with church capital fund raising, church financing, and the entire fund raising campaign through in house marketing and graphics.

Rhodes Architecture provides services, beyond the scope of most seattle church architects and washington state church architects.  We are church designers providing services for all aspects of church planning, church architecture, and church design.
