Questions seeking understanding, coupled with a process of emergent discovery often provide a clear path forward toward unexpected results.  Such was the case with this small, but highly influential, education building in Henderson, Nevada.

Emerged

Working directly with the client, zimmerraystudios developed a program, a form, and a plan that exceeded expectations.  A simple, well designed structure made for efficient and cost effective construction.  The contemporary, yet distinctive material pallet and form provide a lasting impression for the students, the congregation and community at large.
