BELLEVUE BAPTIST CHURCH

MISSION CENTRAL, WEST LOBBY, WORSHIP CENTER

WHAT

Church Renovation

WHERE

Corova, TN

WHEN

2014

Originally conceived as part of a multi-phase master plan to relax the formal atmosphere of the church’s initial construction, these projects were overseen by three different committees and built over four years.  The initial phase provided a high profile space to celebrate the church’s many and varied mission programs, as well as to demonstrate a new, more natural finish palette.  The second phase transformed a “move-through” lobby into a comfortable place for gathering, adding plentiful seating, improving wayfinding, and introducing a coffee café.  For the third phase, Fleming worked with both Bellevue and Paragon 360 and focused on the 6,000-seat worship center.  A major upgrade to the lighting system is the most visible change, along with new finish materials.  A newly flattened stage improves flexibility, allowing for significant shifts of equipment and layout between services. A new modular choir riser system supports better acoustics during Sunday performances while also providing a framework for performance set pieces and non- worship events.  Small changes add up to major improvements at Bellevue.

 "Fleming Architects and Paragon 360 are the best design team I have ever worked with."

- Mark Alexander, Design Director - Bellevue Baptist Church

WHERE

Hernando, MS

WHEN

2005

Fleming Architects has a long-standing relationship with the Palmer Home for children, which is a charitable, non-profit corporation that provides a stable, long-term home for Children who lack an adequate family structure. Over the years, Fleming has collaborated with Palmer Home on many projects, one of which was designing of the entire Palmer Home campus in Hernando, consisting of a lodge, cabins and a chapel.  The Chapel at the Palmer Home has been described as the most beautiful worship space in Mississippi, and it is located in the center of campus, symbolizing the Love of God being the center of the Palmer Home mission. The 130 seat chapel overlooks a 72 acre lake, giving worshipers the feeling of being surrounded by nature. The chapel also includes a bridal suite and support spaces.

 " When Palmer Home for Children decided to do something it had never done in our 112 year history, Fleming Architects were who we trusted to guide us through our expansion in the Hernando area. Scott Fleming and his team were very patient, flexible, and always professional as they guided us in taking our various ideas and turning them into workable solutions for our campus. Function combined with creative details rewarded us with designs that will beautifully serve our needs for years to come."
