St. George

Laguna Hills, CA

This existing site was master planned to build a new Fellowship Hall to compliment the existing Episcopal church and Academy school building. One of the design goals was to create a new welcoming statement at the corner where the new Arcade and Gathering Plaza welcomes the community.

The new Fellowship Hall serves as a multipurpose space for religious education and social gatherings. The Hall is divisible into 6 smaller rooms, with a permanent stage at one end to serve the Parish School music and theatre programs. A commercial kitchen was designed to provide food service for 300 people. The site is anchored by a circular labyrinth which provides a space for prayerful meditation. The arcade houses a columbarium which links the church history with the new ministry building.
