GH2 has worked for many years with parish staff to provide master planning and design services for various improvements and expansion projects at St. Patrick's Episcopal Church in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. GH2 was initially engaged by the Church to provide upgrades to interior finishes, furnishings, and artwork in the main fellowship and gathering space in an effort to enhance the welcoming environment of the facility. GH2 then began working with the church on a master planning effort. Working closely with parish staff, GH2 provided multiple expansion options at the conceptual level, conducted programming/project visioning session with church groups, and selected the most appropriate preliminary design options with parish staff. The result of the master planning effort was the selection of a Phase I project that met the goals of the parish.
Phase I is underway, which includes new church offices, support spaces, and expansion of the existing gathering area.
