St. Paul The Apostle Catholic Church

Houston, Texas

St. Paul Catholic Church needed an innovative way to renovate its cramped, one-building campus. The Master Plan included a 31,000 square foot addition with a fan-shaped worship space seating 900. All administrative offices were relocated to a specific wing. The existing church was re-purposed as a parish hall. In addition, the plan provided a new worship facility and more room for social services and youth activities. Phase I also included a daily mass chapel, choir rehearsal area and bookstore. A central narthex tied together all aspects of the building, provided a large fellowship area, and helped visitors navigate the facility.
