Recently I shared some initial photos of the expansion and renovation of the Park City Christian Center (PCCC) designed by Park City architects, the Elliott Work Group, and I promised to share more photos after the furniture was delivered and in place. As I explained before, a non-profit, non-denominational group runs the CCPC and the new center is designed to better meet the needs of Park City residents.
In the earlier blog, I showed the food pantry, counseling center, offices, and thrift store. This week I returned and photographed the welcoming lobby with its beautiful new furnishings and original art by Susan Swartz.
A sectional provides a cozy place to sit by the fire and enjoy some television, while the glass wall opens to the views of the slopes to set a sense of place.
The center is located on the trail system and provides racks for bikes. I noticed while taking photographs about half of the visitors to the center on those days either walked or cycled, reinforcing the importance of its central location in the town.
The seating area is just outside the doors to the boutique, the second of two used goods stores in the center. The other store is on the same level and to the left.
The boutique attracts shoppers with an eye to the upscale and the unusual. Proceeds all benefit the center, and I observed seasonal workers scouring both stores for warm clothes to get them through the winter.
Upstairs, the conference room enjoys similar views to the lobby area below through the glass wall. Also on this floor is a large community room with kitchen to host big events.
Very often locations that do good works are not inspiring and uplifting. The PCCC sets an example of what a difference it makes to exert extra care and attention to space and the experience of the people who come to the center.
