Clever Architecture provides the full range of services for religious and spiritual institutions including pre-planning, fund raising, master planning, needs assessment, community outreach, strategic planning, architecture, interior design, graphics, and iconic symbolism. Our team of professionals has a great deal of experience in multiple church types, retreat centers, and planning for a variety of religious organizations in urban, suburban and more rural communities. One of the biggest challenges of today's religious institutions is the allocation of rental space to outside education organizations. We have worked with a number of charter and other schools in renovating existing church education wings to find fair and appropriate allocation. Additionally, we know that there is a delicate balance between resources, rental income, and limited, valuable space that may be shared or combined with multiple uses. Finally, sensitivity and respect to cultural norms are an important part of holistic integration into planning and design.
