Lord of Life Lutheran Church Lantern Tower

Lord of Life Lutheran Church - Lantern Tower

Client: Lord of Life Lutheran Church - ELCA
Maple Grove, Minnesota

Background and Issue

A few years after completion of their new church building, the Lord of Life church received a donation to complete the Lantern Tower.  As a contemporary alternate to a steeple or a bell tower, the Lantern Tower is a beacon to the surrounding community. 


The lantern is constructed of brick and stone veneer to match the church.  Access to the lantern is provided via an internal ladder. 

Heidi Y. Granke was the project manager and architect for this project while at BWBR Architects.
