Ecclesiastical Architecture and Engineering

Inspirational Spaces for Every Faith 

The Mission Church outside at night

Attending a religious service is a moving experience, and the design of a house of worship should be equally as captivating. From the façade to the Entry Foyer and Sanctuary, LAN’s designs provide an inviting and expressive experience.

A Place of Pride and Community

LAN’s goal is to inspire parishioners and promote a sense of community. Our design team seamlessly blends dedicated worship space with practical rooms like recreational areas, nurseries, and classrooms to ensure your house of prayer represents and fulfills your congregation’s mission.

"It has been my distinct pleasure to work with the team of architects and engineers from LAN Associates. Their work is exceptionally thorough and creative, having demonstrated a sensitivity to and knowledge of our special needs as a church and private school. The lead architect on our project has consistently been honest, respectful, and insightful, and LAN was always timely and prepared. Deadlines were always met, and requirements were always provided and explained with clarity, expertise and to the satisfaction of our officials."

Lead Pastor Gregg Johnson
The Mission Church

"I am pleased to highly recommend LAN Associates for their expertise in architecture and engineering. I have worked closely with Ken Karle through each stage of our projects which included a major addition to our main sanctuary building, the installation of an artificial turf athletic field, and the new main entrance sign along Route 208. LAN has been actively involved from the initial design considerations, meeting with key ministry leaders as we firmed up the various needs and wants, assisting in congregational meetings promoting the projects, making changes, and providing accurate budgeting information for our fundraising efforts."

Pastor Dave Andersen
Hawthorne Gospel Church

"LAN excelled in all areas. Having worked with them, I can state firmly they exceeded all expectations. Among the areas of excellence were design, working with the Glen Rock Planning Board during appeals and variances, on-the-fly changes when necessary, cooperation with the construction company throughout the buildout, and cooperation with the various committees a church involves during the process. Without hesitation, I strongly recommend LAN Associates to be your architectural, engineering and design choice."
