Synopsis:

 

The new Church of Saint Aloysius tells the story of its purpose through its architectural expression. Two significant conceptual explorations gave form to the design for this church: “re-pitching the tent”, expressed in the delicate soaring roof lines evoking the concept of simple worship and the Four Devotions of Saint Aloysius: Blessed Sacrament, Passion of Our Lord, Love of Our Lady, and Choir of Angels, which sit within the church adjacent to the large concrete buttresses anchoring the roof.

 

The project began as a master plan to understand the nature of the church’s needs today and into the future. The master plan addressed site circulation, service entries, expansion of the existing school and the construction of a new church for the parish.
