St. Boniface Episcopal Church

-A A +A
2001, James Shields for HGA Architects. 3906 W. Mequon Rd.

A steeply pitched gabled roof encompasses this striking modern, copper-clad church. The interior features exposed timbers and Douglas fir decking carried on tapered square piers. Clear glass windows at each gable end illuminate the 350-seat worship space, cherry wood pews, and slate floor. The separate bell tower, a tall, tapered, copper-clad pyramid, complements the shape of the church and forms a dramatic marker of place.
