Saint Pius X

A 14,000 SF expansion adds prayer and office space to a 600-seat church, two-story school adjacent to a large field, and a rectory/residence/office, transforming parish grounds into a unified campus. The new design project included a full analysis of the features and functionality of the site as well as the relationship of the programmed spaces. The playing field and front lawn were extended across the entire property by adding trees and planted areas around the new addition.
