decatur presbyterian church

With many of their founding families interested in the idea, Decatur Presbyterian Church decided to entertain the possibilities of creating a columbarium on the property. Because the church is located at a busy intersection that includes a transit station entrance, creating a space for peace, meditation, and rest proved to be a challenge. jB+a incorporated architectural influences from the existing church buildings into a masonry wall that surrounds the garden and provides a space for memorial plaques to be displayed. The wall and the lush garden plantings also serve as a buffer from the bustling city life on the outside.
