Sacred Heart Catholic Church

We partnered with this historic Catholic church on an addition to expand its accessibility and renovations to restore its original beauty.

The existing church needed a complete renovation to better serve its parishioners. With much of the church’s original ecclesiastical images and design removed in the early 1960s, the church also sought to restore its former history and beauty. The design team worked closely with the church to renovate and redecorate the nave and narthex to bring back its rich detailing.

The church was also renovated and expanded to provide handicap accessibility, restrooms, devotional spaces, a reconciliation room, and a new entry with circulation space.
