First Presbyterian Church South Wing

First Presbyterian Church in Nashville, Tennessee, sits on a sprawling campus shared with the Oak Hill School. Street Dixon Rick created a new vision for the future, for both the church and school, with a campus-wide master plan. The cohesive design strategy initiated a $20 million campaign for site additions and overall campus-wide improvements.

SDR’s design reinforces the church as the welcoming and principal building on the site by adding a new South Wing to FPC. The addition claims 30,000 square feet of adult education space, children’s education space, a renovated fellowship hall, new church offices and new entries. Both the interior and exterior design of the South Wing was made to blend seamlessly with the church’s historic sanctuary building designed by Edwin Keeble. Underneath the Keeble Sanctuary, the main fellowship hall was fully renovated and made ADA accessible. The added space also allowed room to accommodate a new church library and archives as well as the addition of a session room and large meeting room.

Both the church and school continued to function throughout construction.
