ST. MARTIN OF TOURS CATHOLIC CHURCH | NEW CHURCH CONCEPTUAL DESIGN

Planning & formation for a new 800+ seat traditional church designed in the Texas vernacular Gothic Revival style for a historic Irish-American settlement near Dallas that is quickly growing. The ambitious project serves as a centerpiece for an ongoing, comprehensive Parish Renewal Campaign, ‘Beauty Ever Ancient, Ever New’ and is inspired by the late architect Nicholas Clayton due to his important work across North Texas, his Irish roots, and the similarity of design criteria that establishes a dynamic continuity with the strong tradition of Texas Catholic church architecture. The project is planned to be constructed in phases to maintain the integrity of the vision.

St. Mary’s Catholic Center | New Church ConceptUAL DESIGN

New 1500+ seat church for a thriving college parish designed in a Byzantine Romanesque and Spanish Colonial vernacular brick style in keeping with the Academic Eclecticism movement around Texas from the 1890s to the 1940s, especially several important churches across southeast Texas. The new church will be home to one of the largest Catholic student ministries in the country and will serve as a primary catechetical and evangelization tool, as envisioned by the ‘Beauty Encounter Tradition’ Capital Campaign.
