St. Theresa’s Parish addition and renovation was a 20,665 SF multi-phase addition and renovation of an occupied school in Ashburn, VA. The 16,138 SF addition infilled two wings of the existing school creating a courtyard between the existing U-shaped elevation of the school and the new addition. The addition façade is composed of multiple materials including brick, porcelain tile, architectural and modular precast stone and EIFS. Inside, the addition entry features maple column and beam wraps, porcelain tile flooring and a peaked roof with pendant light fixtures. Flanking the main entry is office space for the school faculty and staff as well as a chapel, clinic, and multi-purpose rooms that can be divided as necessary with the use of new operable partitions. The renovation was completed over summer break and includes modifications to offices and classrooms to better serve the needs of the school.
