St. Gabriel Catholic Church Back

Project Description

St. Gabriel is a new church established in 2003 by the merging of three parishes. The church and future school are located on a rural 40 acre site in Hubertus, Wisconsin. Groth Design Group worked closely with the parish to establish a Master Plan for the entire campus. Major programmatic areas of the Master Plan included a new worship space (seating for 1,000), Eucharistic Chapel, parish center, offices, classrooms, gymnasium, library and kitchen. Phase I of the campus featured 24,500 square feet including a worship space to seat 850, Reservation Chapel, Gathering, meeting rooms, offices and a fellowship hall. The worship space has been designed to accommodate fan shaped seating, an immersion font and a full ambulatory with niches for shrines and statuary. A soaring central gable accentuates the hierarchy and relationship of the font, altar, cross and tabernacle. The exterior of the building utilizes natural materials including wood detailing and stone and brick cladding.
