St. Paul's Church
1998- 2000 Wellesley, Massachusettss
St. Paul’s Church was designed in 1915 by Joseph McGinnis, an early partner of John M. Gray Company Architects. In 1999 Gray Architects was retained to develop design studies for an and addition and renovation to the nave.
The building was designed in a Romanesque style, with a brick, limestone and slate roof. To beautify the interior of the church and retain visibility of the altar, two columns were removed and a new structural system was designed for the new and existing roofs.
The original details of the interior and the exterior were replicated, and all of the nave stained glass windows were replaced with exact matches of the original designs of the 1915 windows. New lighting and chandeliers were provided, and the church was equipped with a new air conditioning and ventilation system.
