OCUCC

Completed 1998

The Oakland Community United Church of Christ (OCUCC) was built with volunteer labor and donated materials. The project took two and a half years to complete working only on Saturdays from 8am-12pm. The design involved the renovation of an existing butler warehouse building that was used to make prosthetic limbs during World War II, and more recently as a place to store and repair cabs. The simple solution includes the insertion of a wooden kente cloth which defines the sanctuary, and the narthex.
