St. Francis Xavier Parish Office

Renovation to update and enlarge the parish office

Built in the 1950s as a convent, the inconspicuous office building needed a point of entry and more space.

Cutting through the middle of the building created a more inviting entrance and allowed for the addition of a lobby, break room, conference rooms, and more office spaces. The glass gabled structure provides a strong visual focus, creates a place for vertical circulation, and takes advantage of the wooded view beyond.

Through the generosity of the Hayden family and the parish, we were able to bring new life to this building.

Design elements including the light fixture by the front door and the flooring in the lobby and breakroom mimic traditional stained glass.

Downstairs, a hall of offices leads to a new outdoor patio.
