Our Lady of Fatima
Newark, New Jersey
Located on Jefferson Street in the Ironbound section of Newark, this 11,000 square foot Day Care/Parish Center addition provided much needed space.

The addition, shown on the left, expanded each floor level of the existing facility and provided elevator access throughout. The original building was a synagogue before its use as a church. The restricted property arrangement of the church created a unique configuration. New spaces were creatively arranged to work with the existing layout. The design creates a new overall composition that incorporates the old with the new. The entrance to the expanded facility is between the structures leading into a new ground level lobby and reception area.
