In order to relocate Rector and Administrator to 1st Floor,
it's necessary to displace some existing
uses. Basic planning premise
used is windowed rooms for people, storage in non-windowed spaces!
From an optimum planning perspective, ideally there would be up to four
distinct spaces defined:
1) Personal office for the Rector
2) A separate Counseling space
3) A Church Administrator Office
4) Administrative storage space
First Floor has Room 108 for large Group meetings, so Rector thinks need
number 2 is already met.
Spaces identified to relocate into: Rector into "Polly Sumner
room that currently stores
tables/chairs will be new Library; small room connected by Dutch door will be
for quiet reading or
contemplative prayer (or could be used by the Rector for one-on-one counseling).
Administrative office & storage functions to use much of the
space in former church Bookstore;
with balance of space not used for Admin becoming separated storage for
