Horizon Community Church Master Planning
After purchasing a 160-acre golf course alongside the Little Miami River in Cincinnati, Horizon Community Church leaders worked with CDH to create a master plan for a new church campus. A primary objective was to preserve the beauty of the natural site while positing the new campus buildings in an area that takes full advantage of the pristine landscape. The complex was designed with sustainability in mind and features a cluster of buildings that resembles a European village. Energy is conserved through high performance thermal envelope and a selection of sustainable materials.
The design team worked closely with church leaders to create many of the outdoor features that clearly define the campus. The first phase of the master plan includes a traditional French Country design and sets the foundation for future growth and expansion. The focal point of the church’s narthex is a grand fireplace with a large hearth that serves as a gathering place for members.
