SCARED HEART CATHOLIC CURCH
RENOVATING 1920'S MISSION SYTLE CHURCH
SAN DIEGO, CA
Sacred Heart Catholic Church
A chance to renovate a 1920’s Mission Style Catholic Church two blocks from the ocean created a need to honor the history and beautifully adorned simplicity of this worship space. The image of entering God’s house was reinforced in the original design and respected in the renovation. The interior renovation focused on a series of small aesthetic and technical improvements that collectively rejuvenated the church, but did not reveal a date, creating a sense of timelessness. Entering the church, one passes a new Baptistery that symbolizes our entrance to the holy space, and a new Chapel behind the Chancel creates an intimate space for private adoration of God’s presence.
