W2A Design Group is currently providing full Architectural services for a new 16,000 SF Parish Center for Holy Family Church in Nazareth PA. The project includes a new 5,000 SF Banquet Hall, which can be subdivided into a 1,400 SF Luncheon Room specifically designed to provide a more intimate setting for Funeral luncheons, as well as a 3,600 SF Banquet Room. These rooms will be fit out with full audio-visual capabilities. These spaces are served by a full service commercial kitchen, which can easily accommodate the needs of an outside caterer.A 1,200 SF two-story fully glazed entrance Lobby will serve casual parish functions including Sunday morning “coffee hour” after Mass, and will also provide an additional gathering area in conjunction with larger banquets, with the coffee bar easily transformed for cocktail hour functions. The Second-Floor Mezzanine overlooking the Lobby will provide additional space for smaller private gatherings that may break from larger events, and can also serve as an independent gathering space.
The Second Floor provides three large Meeting Rooms for the expanding parish community needs and will be available both during the day and the evening. Also on the Second Floor is a 1,500 SF Multi-Purpose Room which will provide facilities for daily lunch service of the students attending the adjacent K-8 parish elementary school, which is connected by means of an enclosed link structure. Served by its own Warming Kitchen, this space has been designed to provide the utmost safety of the school students, as it can be physically isolated from adjacent spaces when utilized by groups that are not directly associated with the school. For functions during non-school hours, the entire building can be used in its entirety.
