St. Gabriel Catholic Church
St. Gabriel is a new church established in 2003 by the merging of three parishes. The church is located on a rural 40 acre site. GROTH Design Group worked closely with the parish to establish a master plan for the entire campus. Major programmatic areas of the master plan included a new worship space, Eucharistic Chapel, parish center, offices, classrooms, gymnasium, library and kitchen.
This 24,500-square-foot project includes a worship space to seat 850, reservation chapel, gathering, meeting rooms, offices and a fellowship hall. The worship space has been designed to accommodate fan shaped seating, an immersion font and a full ambulatory with niches for shrines and statuary.
A soaring central gable accentuates the hierarchy and relationship of the font, altar, cross and tabernacle. The exterior of the building utilizes natural materials including wood detailing and stone and brick cladding.
GROTH Design Group was selected by the Congregation of Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church to design a Master Phasing Plan for a new church and educational facility.
The St. Paul Lutheran School project involves the expansion and remodeling of the existing gymnasium totals approximately 9,700 square feet.
