In RMC’s 15-year relationship with Bellingham’s most recognizable church, the firm has helped plan and implement a series of projects that support the church’s evolving needs. Projects include the renovation and expansion of the church, which liturgically centers a new altar and baptismal font and creates a new parish church entrance; the Assumption Catholic School’s renovation, which included new classrooms, and a parish/school library and nursery; and accessibility, life-safety and seismic upgrades for all primary parish structures.
Next is Hope House, the Church’s multi-service center for people in need. Established in 2000, Hope House has outgrown its original building, a converted single family home. RMC is designing a new facility that maintains the center’s friendly, residential scale while providing visual ties to the church campus.
