St. Elizabeth Ann Seton


Built in 1992, St Elizabeth expressed an aesthetic recognizable from that time; a fan-shaped Nave, white drywall, brown brick exterior, and very little iconography. Our goal here was to soften the sharp angles of the interior, introduce color, and enhance the beauty of worship and a Catholic sensibility. This entailed using stained wood in forms that highlight the altar and tabernacle and create a sense of place and verticality. We also designed a new porcelain floor for the Nave and Sanctuary that uses new quincunx patterns up the main aisle as part of the new richer symbolism and motif usage for the church.
