St. Aloysius Catholic Church

Joseph Furr was the principal in charge of this project as part of another landscape architectural firm. This project involved the expansion of an existing church and school, which required the placement of a new sanctuary in the center of the main exterior space. The new building was successfully placed, with minimal impact to the well-landscaped site. The plans developed gathering gardens at both major exits and incorporated the existing pedestrian circulation through the spaces. The notion of a transition from the worldly to the spiritual was one of the most significant keys to the success of this project.
