Saint Mark Children and Youth Center

An anchor to the midtown area for over the past 28 years, Saint Mark Baptist Church has existed in the greater Little Rock area for over 125 years.  We welcomed the idea of bringing this 47,592 square foot building project to life, a project to “create a place where youth can grow, serve and lead”.  Many components of their building program were directly targeting the children of the congregation and the community.  A place the children can come to worship, receive educational support after school, and mental health support.

The project achieved an ASID Bronze Design Award for Institutional Category.


Building Features Include:

• Entrance Lobby & Connection to Existing Sanctuary

• Worship Spaces for the Different Youth Age Groups

• Youth Classrooms

• Community Room

• Banquet Room

• Refreshment Areas and Gathering Spaces for Youth
