Grace United Methodist
Architexas provided preservation master planning and architectural services for the restoration of the historic Grace United Methodist Church in Old East Dallas. The 1903 Gothic Revival brick and cut stone church was expanded in 1915 to house a larger congregation in the sanctuary and again in the 1920s for additional classrooms. The 20,000 square foot building houses one of Dallas’ oldest congregations and currently allows many community service organizations to utilize space in their facility including a health clinic, legal assistance, day care and refugee relocation Ministries.
Architexas conducted a workshop to develop a comprehensive program and produced a phased master plan. Architexas assisted in securing significant grants from foundations to fund $350,000 for Phase I. Phase II was the restoration of the original sanctuary and the parlor was restored in 2004.
In 2010, Architexas provided historic preservation consulting services for the corner tower restoration and kitchen renovation study, providing cost estimations for both.
