Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Central Oregon
Earth Advantage Platinum
Net Zero Ready
The new spiritual home for the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Central Oregon (UUFCO) explores the potential for integrating spiritual, educational, and community functions with the subtle beauty of the Central Oregon landscape.
The UUFCO New Home houses a 250-seat sanctuary with minister and choir platform, seven meeting/classroom spaces, a catering kitchen, an administrative office suite, and support spaces. In addition to its primary use, the building will serve the community as an event and performance space, a preschool, and will host yoga classes, art exhibits, and other community meetings.
Located at the edge of Bend’s west side, the project is designed to embrace the high desert landscape, while also serving as a model of sustainability within the often harsh Central Oregon climate – embodying the Unitarian Universalist principle of “respect for the interdependent web of all existence.”
