An interactive process with the members of this well-established parish established the need for what is now their new gathering space and enlarged and enhanced worship space, and highlighted the need to replace an aging building system. 

With a commitment to respect the integrity of the existing church design, project designers repurposed the space while adding areas to simplify circulation and provide mid-sized meeting spaces, an office for part-time staff and volunteers, a mother's lounge, a preschool and music practice space.
