Church Addition and Master Plan

Soderstrom Architects assisted St. James Parish in McMinnville in the development of a master plan for their campus. Our work included taking inventory of this Catholic Church’s current building usage and their ministries, establishing parish goals, and exploring their vision.

Soderstrom then provided a schematic design for a new 800 seat church and compiled a final report to assist St. James with fund raising support. In addition, we helped St. James present its vision to the city and the county in order to receive the appropriate land-use approvals and permits in a traditional architectural/client relationship. As a result, St. James constructed a new addition/remodel that doubled seating capacity and added a new vestibule, entry and outdoor plaza.
