Holy Apostles Catholic Church in New Berlin has added a 700 square foot perpetual adoration chapel. While adoration may take place in a church, perpetual adoration must take place in a chapel that is not being used for mass. Therefore, the chapel has its own separate, secure entrance from the outside. Involved from concept through construction administration, GROTH Design Group has tied the new 30-person chapel into the architecture of the church, taking cues from the existing form and material to make it integrated, with a warm and welcoming feeling.Read More
St. Jerome’s Parish plans included expansion into a multi-phase school and worship space. Growing needs and a changing area made it necessary to reach out into the community and provide a larger and more efficient church and school.
The design of the church and school buildings developed from a study of the site conditions and blends with this rural setting plus the neighboring residential and institutional properties. A natural wetland at the Southeast portion of the site and an engineered detention pond enhance onsite water retention and quality. Ball fields for the church and school bring in families from the surrounding communities.
The 850 seat church represents Phase II of the overall master plan for the campus.Read More
The Cardinal Stritch University chapel accommodates approximately 150 people with wonderful natural-lighting and the architectural appeal appropriate for a Franciscan chapel.
