The traditional cruciform-shaped sanctuary drove some of the unique and exciting features of this project. Rising behind the altar is a curved choir loft and an elevated baptistery with a Gothic window in the curved tilt-up panels at the rear. The transepts are formed by the use of two long spandrel panels with windows. Setback walls along the nave add layers to the exterior of the building as well as functional aisles within the sanctuary. The use of formliner with an intricate reveal layout makes the exterior of the building look as if it were built with large individual stones. Adding function to form, every panel on the job is insulated. Since the square footage of walls nearly doubles the useable casting-bed area of the building footprint, a detailed casting layout was developed, incorporating stacked panels and casting beds.
