St. Philomena Church


Client: St. Philomena Church

Project Type: Religious

Services: Architecture

Location:  Belmont, WI

Size:  8,150 s.f. existing church with additions of 1,000 s.f.

Project Overview:

This project provided a new front vestibule and lift addition to the front of the church and also provided additional gathering area at the existing stair landing to help reduce congestion at the entry area. The lift was provided to link the entry doors with both the upper level church and the lower level hall/classroom area.  Alterations were also made to the existing lower level restrooms to make them more accessible. A few years later additional storage space was added for the lower level kitchen as well as a new vestment and servers area to the church behind the altar.
