Saint Gabriel’s

Inspired by cloisters of the past, Morpurgo Architects designed an outdoor room with a traditional colonnaded walkway connecting the historic Church to the proposed classroom wing and social hall.

By positioning the addition into the sloping hillside, the large scale of the new building is minimized to complement the classical proportions of the Church.

A portico chiseled into an ivy-covered wall provides a literal and figurative passage from the parking area to the courtyard. Saint Gabriel’s location on a tranquil country road provides an ideal setting for worship, study and contemplation.
