St. Patrick Catholic Church - Remodel of the O'Gara Ministry Center
Location: Lake Forest, IL
This project featured a complete interior remodel of the oldest wing of the church. The vision of the church was to update it to an aesthetic that would attract users for multiple uses.
Uses included: Flexible use classrooms, Administration offices for teachers, Kitchen, Center gathering area, entry message boards, and new restrooms.
The project focused on providing a flexible space that aesthetically paid homage to the original building. Wood-grained operable walls, wood ceiling panels, and acoustical ventwood wall infills were utilized. There was also a focus on creating space that could be used by both adults and children depending on the event. LED accent lighting around the perimeter helps to set moods for different event types.
