This project was a significant renovation of a Revival-style church in Long Beach that had been severely remodeled in the 70s and 80s. Unfortunately, the original 1920s design was not known, so the new sanctuary was redesigned to complement the existing church style. Attention to architectural details and the use of appropriate materials reflect its Spanish Colonial heritage. Devotional statues and paintings were integrated, with one painting, by a parishioner of Our Lady of Guadalupe, serving as a significant design element. The 4,000-sq.ft. church embodies the Hispanic heritage of its community and parishioners. Its sense of modesty and authenticity enriches its resonance.
