Topeka, KS

Mother Teresa of Calcutta Catholic Church

SDG developed the master plan for the 14-acre campus for this new Catholic parish, which will eventually include a 1300-seat sanctuary, parish offices, religious education classrooms, parish hall, K-8 grade school, and amenities such as play fields, gardens, and an amphitheater.

The first step was to build a multi-purpose parish center that could serve as worship center, parish offices, and a flexible fellowship/classroom space now, but later become the gymnasium and cafeteria for the grade school.

The building incorporates many sustainable design features, such as abundant windows which minimize the need for artificial lighting, as well as a geothermal heating and cooling system.
