KR Architecture & Interiors Oversees Design of New Calvary Light Church, Abington; Former real estate agency that becomes a worship center

Published on June 14, 2022

KR Architecture & Interiors, an Abington, MA based architecture firm, served as the architectural firm for the design of the Calvary Light Church currently under construction at 204 Brockton Avenue, Abington.

The 1,560-square-foot, one-story building formerly served as a real estate office. Led by architect Krista Manna, owner of KR Architecture & Interiors, the church sought a change of use from a shop to a “meeting room,” which required the addition of a few additional Americans With Disability Act (ADA) exits and three additional bathrooms. The design also includes a new welcome center.

According to Manna, construction will take around two months. “There were some interesting design challenges because the building wasn’t originally conceived as a church,” she said. Other features include opening up the space, adding a small platform for the pastor and other speakers, dedicated seating for a congregation, and an AV booth for lighting control.

She added: “It’s always gratifying to help a client convert a building for a new use and to see that the community agrees to that new use as well. It has been a pleasure to work with Calvary Light Church and we welcome them to Abington.”
