St. Paul Catholic Church
As part of our master planning and parish center improvements, our design team’s leadership provided a compelling design for St. Paul’s Church entry. Our solution incorporates a prominent entry plaza, which mitigates a 6 foot grade differential between the parking level and the church entry. This feature includes a network of stairs and ramps, offering full accessibility to all parishioners. Furthermore, this hierarchical element directs all worshippers to the church’s entrance. A series of juxtaposed retaining walls, ramps, stairs, planters, lighting, and landscaping are meticulously configured to create a unifying element seamlessly integrating into the site. Continuity of the structure is maintained by incorporating brick and stone into the new construct, matching the palette of existing campus building materials.
