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.
Trinity Lutheran Church
The congregation at Trinity Lutheran sought to strengthen ministry programs by combining operations from two sites onto a single campus; adding a new worship and parish ministry facility to the existing suburban school facility.
The new worship space is the heart of the overall development, providing for contemporary worship needs, including praise band and future technology systems, while maintaining the more traditional symbols of Lutheran worship within a concept allowing for expansion of the choir program.
The orientation of the new worship space on a high profile site bounded by two major thoroughfares, and a prominent 75 feet high spire, proclaims the presence of the church - marking the place where the faithful of the community announce the blessings of God to the world.
This new 14,000-square-foot Family Life Center is comprised of a 500 seat contemporary worship space/multi-purpose space, and a 5,400-square-foot administrative wing.
The goals of St. Dennis’s new spaces were to provide a redesigned wall backdrop for the Sanctuary Platform and reorder of storage spaces.
