Courtyard Infil Highland Park Presbyterian Church, Dallas, Texas
Adapting for Growth
As a church nestled within a burgeoning residential neighborhood, HP Presbyterian desired to transform its beautiful neo-Gothic campus into a space that better connects to its neighboring community while maintaining its original character and architectural richness. Originally designed by renowned architect Mark Lemmon in 1932, the historic campus is constrained to its site limiting its potential for expansion. Creativity was key throughout the design to maximize every square foot in the most impactful way.
The site is located within an existing courtyard long forgotten and underutilized by its patrons. Highland Park Presbyterian Church needed a place for the student ministries to connect and the new gym provides that while honoring the historic architecture.
