The first phase of a multi-phase expansion includes a single-story addition to the south end of Pilgrim Lutheran’s school campus.
Prince of Peace
New Church and School Addition | Green Bay, WI
The challenge for this new construction project was to design a building that created a new identity for two parishes becoming one. Set within a traditionally agrarian locale, the architecture for Prince of Peace builds on the blessings of God’s Creation and the journey of God’s faithful within the created world. The open structure steeple and bell tower serve as a beacon to the surrounding area.
The building follows a cross-shaped plan that is articulated in common and uncomplicated brick with very simple stone and timber accents.
The project includes worship space with seating for approximately 1,000, gathering space, fellowship hall, offices, kitchen and mechanical basement. Master planning includes a school addition as a future phase.
St. Jerome’s Parish plans included expansion into a multi-phase school and worship space to provide a larger and more efficient church and school.
St. Jerome Parish School houses a K-8, two-track school with approximately 500 students arrayed to maximize solar gain during late autumn, winter, and early spring.
