Master Plan – Word of Life Bible Institute

Word of Life Bible Institute|Schroon Lake, New York
architecture+ prepared the Master Plan for the Word of Life Bible Institute to develop their 190 acre academic/residential campus. The Master Plan includes a new Health and Fitness Center, Welcome Center, Student Life Center, and Residence Halls. The architectural details of all buildings will build upon the existing campus architecture and Adirondack style and include simple gabled or shed roof lines, heavy timber structure, stone belt courses, and covered entry porches.

Higher Education
190 acres
We designed the Welcome Center to provide a new public face for the Institute. The 3,500 square foot building will be located at the head of the Campus entry court.
The Student Life Center was constructed in 2017. It is situated along the lake to take advantage of the lake views and natural setting. This one-story building includes a new dining hall, kitchen, bakery, and culinary offices along with the student life components of bookstore, café, snack bar, recreation space, lounge, mailroom, seminar room, and student life satellite offices. The 37,500 square foot dining hall and food service area accommodate 600 students at a single sitting.
"We are very excited about working with architecture+ as we revitalize our Bible Institute. There is a remarkable professionalism and quality in everything we’ve seen from architecture+ and in all of our interactions with the firm."
