Project Categories:

St. Francis of Assisi
  • The two-story, 24,000 square foot masonry facility is situated prominently on a wooded hill overlooking the main chapel  A unique project feature is that the religious education center’s chapel is formed in the shape of an ellipse similar to that of the main church  
  • A primary consideration for the design of this project was to establish a relationship between the new religious education facility and the main St  Francis of Assisi Community chapel
  • Outstanding features of the interior include a curved stairway and planter illuminated by a large skylight  An 8-foot-long, 2-foot-high aquarium of multi-colored fish is part of an adjacent atrium wall
