W2A performed a Master Plan and Preliminary Design for the Church of St. Isidore for a new 47-acre site in Milford Township, just outside Quakertown.
The Master Plan accommodates a new Church / Parish Center, a new K-8 school, playing fields, internal roads, and parking for 600 cars. The plan was developed to provide maximum visibility of the Church from the two intersecting roads. An existing farmhouse will be utilized as a rectory and a pond will serve as a symbolic representation of the rite of baptism.
In an effort to integrate all components of the site and a future education center, vehicular traffic has been located on the perimeter of the site where possible. This creates a pedestrian-friendly area between the Church and School. The site is further integrated by means of a site axis, terminated at one end by the future School and by the Church at the other end. This pedestrian walkway passes through a meditation garden and between the rectory and pond.
