St. DemianaSan Diego, CA
The St. Demiana site is planned to accommodate a large social hall building with adjoining religious education class rooms and kitchen facilities, a new church to seat 450, and future offices and meeting rooms. The Coptic Orthodox traditional forms are incorporated into the domed church structure complemented by the Hall with a radial form abutting the adjacent church building. A large common formal plaza provides for outdoor fellowship space shared by all buildings. The church interior is open to the large dome with space for iconography and artwork planned to adorn the traditional church interior.
