St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and School

Prosper, Texas

St Paul’s Episcopal Church of Prosper engaged GFF Architects to master plan and design their new campus located on a 7 acre site on the Southwest corner of Coit and First Street in Prosper, Texas. The new facility will function as a day school during the week and church facility on the weekends.

The master plan includes a 250 seat multi-purpose worship space, children’s education space, as well as indoor and outdoor community gathering spaces. Future campus additions include a new worship space for 350, outdoor play areas and expanded children’s education space.

After several meetings with the church, three main themes were revealed; community inclusiveness, natural light and simple materials.  The use of light toned plaster and natural stone maintain the material simplicity requested, while the use of colonnade wrapped courtyards and light filled worship spaces reflect the sense of community and openness.
