Design Approach/Narrative: Through a series of workshops and design charrettes, we created a space and functional program that incorporated the design ideas of the parish. Through our site studies and with our conceptual diagrams, we developed solutions that fully incorporated these ideas and created the atmosphere the parish had envisioned. We created a placed of worship that reflects the past but provides a warm and inviting environment to reinforce the beliefs for the future.
