St. John the Baptist | Waunakee, WI

This Master Plan design for St. John the Baptist provides a new 40,000 SF building to house worship, fellowship, offices and meeting programs.  The master plan expands parking on the site from 70 stalls to 254 stalls.

The challenge for site planning was to find room within the urban setting for both expansion of parking and programming.  The design identified key parcels of land for purchase to accommodate the expansion, including preparations with local jurisdictions for the closing of a village street. The new parking and building location needed to respond to the existing day school and church buildings that will remain in use. 

The challenge for the design was to create a building that in plan, massing and ornamentation would be complimentary to the adjacent turn-of-the-century church as well as true to the current needs of liturgy and ministry.
