The parish’s program entailed the provision of a new church, including a narthex gathering wing, a choir practice room, shrine areas, sacristies and reconciliation rooms. Key to the owner’s program was the desire to connect to the generous exterior landscaping both in terms of views and for outdoor gathering and processional connection to the church. Towards that end the outdoors is connected to visually and in the building’s massing at four corners dedicated to shrines. Also integral to the program was the desire to have all functions immediately accessible from the church. The parti was derived from the scalar dynamic between circle and square. The resultant plan aligned with the owner's desire for a radial seating plan. The result was a central, light filled church with glazed corners and opaque massing at each of the four walls housing discrete functions at each point of the compass.
