The Cardinal Stritch University chapel accommodates 150 people with natural lighting and the architectural appeal appropriate for a Franciscan chapel.
St. Matthew's Lutheran School and Church
Vision Leads to New Daycare & School Building | Oconomowoc, WI
GROTH Design Group worked with a construction manager to evaluate the existing facility and provide a conceptual plan for the new site. Through visioning workshops, staff and member interviews and with the help of civil and architectural engineers, the church purchased land. GROTH Design Group provided a layout for the school and church with additional, new programming for First Steps, an early childhood/day care. The worship space will remain on the existing site for now.
With limited growth potential for church and school on the existing site, St. Matthew’s purchased a new parcel of land in an undeveloped annex of the city.
The school features preschool, K-5 classrooms, including cafeteria, stage, gym, library, specialty classrooms and offices. Both the cafeteria and gym will use the double- sided stage for worship and school productions. The day care/early childhood will house 90 children under four years of age.
This new three-story facility for the Notre Dame School Campus provides classroom space for up to 450 elementary and middle school students.
Beyond its academic mission, this glassy, four-story facility will be welcoming and community-facing as the university begins to transform its Clybourn St. corridor.
