St. Joseph’s Parish Green Classroom Building
The existing St. Joseph’s campus consists of the Church, Pastor’s residence, Healy Hall, a school complex and playing fields. Phase II of the Parish’s facility master plan will locate a new classroom building at the east edge of the existing campus.
Because of the building’s location, it will be important to continue the courtyard organization of the site, match as closely as possible existing materials and enhance the ways the current campus functions. The new building forms a “gateway” to the playing fields, and creates useful outdoor courtyards in place of existing residual spaces. These “found spaces” added to the value of the project without adding to the cost significantly.
The parish intends to use sustainable building materials wherever possible.
