Southeast Asian Vicariate

A new church/parish hall complex for the Southeast Asian Vicariate in NE Portland is comprised of a worship space for 600, and parish hall seating 400. The foot-print of the 15,000 s.f., $2 mil. facility was shaped almost entirely by site constraints. By positioning the parish hall behind the worship space and visually connecting it to the worship space with a glass partition, it has been possible to allow for overflow seating to occur in the parish hall on religious holidays. Budget constraints on the other hand resulted in a two phased project. The general contractor produced the building shell while the interior finishes were a collective effort of congregation contractors and volunteer labor.
