St. Stephen Catholic Church

Oak Creek, WI

The challenge for site planning for St. Stephen was to fit extensive interior and exterior program requirements onto a 14 acre site. A portion of the site was not buildable due to the presence of wetlands. The site was also adjacent to a major interstate freeway, further restricting the placement of building components.

The building design has a contemporary architectural language that keeps with the suburban setting, while still recalling the form, materials, and details of the Parish’s existing historic church.
