COMPLETE: St Francis of Assisi Catholic Church

Happy Friday everyone! We are thrilled to finally be able to share with you some amazing photographs of one of our largest religious projects - St Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. The scope of the project included full architectural services for the design of a brand new 1,500-seat church along with a brand new 300-seat chapel. Between the two structures is a large central plaza with lush landscaping and a multitude of seating areas for private reflection and prayer. The material pallet for both the church and chapel consists of bold contrasting grey limestone walls and rich dark wood millwork for a truly unique spiritual experience. Inside both venues, visitors will be in awe of the level of craftsmanship as well as the stunning stained glass windows throughout. The Chapel for example contains a large cupola outlined with small arched stained glass clearstory windows, giving the building a "jewel box" effect from the main street before early morning mass. We would like to thank John Davis from DVDesign Group for capturing some great photos for us. To see more, please click on the image below.

Have a great weekend!
