Our team partnered with Sacred Heart Cathedral to create an addition that maintained the look and detail of the historic main cathedral.

Need: More space to accommodate both the congregation and community

Solution: Design an addition to include group spaces and classrooms

Result: An addition that continues the aesthetic of the original masonry and liturgical ornamentation

Keeping the Historical Aesthetic

The multi-level addition benefits the congregation and community including many new amenities such as a new gathering space, a great hall, classrooms, and support spaces.

We also added a new entry, kitchen, and restrooms to the original 1891 cathedral.
