Key Elements of the Master Plan: The key elements of the plan are based on needs specific to the members of Saint Paulís and the constraints and opportunities inherent in the site. These elements include those that relate to the memorial garden as well as those that encompass the whole site.
The Master Plan focuses on clarity, function and elegance to create a coherent and comfortable design that will serve the needs of the parish into the future while retaining ties with the past.
Analysis of character zones: The site has extensive beauty but its many ďfacesĒ and functions create confusion and disrupt harmony. Mature trees play a major role in site character, determining areas of sun and shade and defining outdoor rooms. Existing surface drainage carries water away from the buildings to the back of the property.
The handsome stone church required an elegant design response using similar materials.
Memorial Wall: Simple and elegant in form, the linear design of the memorial wall provides space for individual plots.
Integrated design The new site plan provides a fully accessible entry to the historic stone church while reflecting its traditional design and material.
Site Assets: Mature trees create dappled shade and a sense of enclosure within the existing stone perimeter wall, a welcome contrast to the busy, adjacent Main Street.
