Dixon Ministry Center

Cedarville University
Cedarville, Ohio

The University's needs to gather the growing campus community under one roof and replace inadequate music facilities were the catalysts for this 120,000 sf auditorium & music facility. The building houses teaching and administrative space for the music department and a 3,400-seat chapel for the entire university. SEM situated the facility adjacent to Cedar Lake to provide views of the campus from the courtyard. The transitional design combines both traditional campus features with contemporary forms and materials.
