Eastview Church

Normal, IL


BLDD Architects was commissioned by Eastview Christian Church for this relocation project on a 95-acre site. BLDD selected Bill Conner as the theatre consultant for the project.

This “seeker friendly church” was intentionally designed not to look like the traditional church. The design of this project began with a master plan. The first phase of the project was a 159,000 square foot building that includes a 2,500-seat auditorium, a children’s auditorium, a youth auditorium/gym, staff offices, large meeting rooms, a children’s nursery, a bookstore, and spacious public atrium.

Houston's First Baptist Church

Houston, TX


After 30 years of use, Houston’s First Baptist Church felt it was time to update their worship center.  Frustrated by out of date seating, lighting, audio and video systems the church contracted with Studio Red Architects for this $12 million project completed in 2008.  The plans for the renovation encompassed seating replacement, a new platform, an updated choir configuration and a new catwalk system over the house with related ceiling design and a circular walking truss.  Bill Conner Associates LLC designed the dimming and control systems, curved curtain tracks upstage and motorized doors revealing the updated baptistery.
