Space-Age Church Wing

I was walking around Capitol Hill the other day and saw this church, Our Savior’s Lutheran Church.  It’s a nice little brick church built between 1923 and 1925.


I didn’t think much about it until I was nearly a block away and saw this extraordinary building down the back alley.


Was it an apartment building?  Or a space-age house?  I was so curious I had to take a closer look.


It turned out to be the most unique space-age church wing that I have ever seen – perhaps the only space-age church wing I have ever seen!  This addition was built in 1962 to the north and east of the 1920s Our Savior’s church building and is an educational wing for the church.  It currently houses St. Luke’s Ministry Nurse Aide Training Program, which trains men and women for a second career as a nurse’s aide.
