Reigning Mother of God, Charlotte, NC

Reigning Mother of God Orthodox Church

This Russian Orthodox parish asked Andrew to design a wooden church to accommodate 150 people. Because of the rural character of the lot, a small clearing surrounded by forest, Andrew recommended building the church from logs in the manner of a Russian village church. The form of the structure derives from classic 17th-century Russian and Capatho-Rusyn examples, but the exterior styling suggests vernacular American influence as well. The site plan includes a frontage wall and gate and remodeling of the existing structures on the lot to harmonize with the character of the new church.
