Having worked with the parish on an addition to its nearby school, we were asked to reinvigorate their existing church. It had been a dream of the building committee to construct a new, more gracious and inviting narthex, appropriate to the scale of the church. We desired the addition to appear as if it had always been there, but also to feature a more vertical orientation. The parish is very pleased with the solution. Inside, a completely redesigned sanctuary area updated the appearance while keeping the flavor of the original church. Along with the new narthex, a weekday chapel and support facilities brought refreshed life to the parish.
