st. anthony’s high school commissioned bld architecture to design a new student center and chapel for its existing 1961 building in huntington. religion is an important part of the school’s academic and athletic program, so bld architecture designed a 12th-century romanesque chapel which was dedicated to our lady of the angels. the chapel now resides in the central courtyard of the school.
the new 5,700 sf romanesque-inspired our lady of the angels chapel, completed in 2012, was constructed in the former senior courtyard and serves as the center for the spiritual life of the school. a deliberate choice was made to keep the interior relatively unadorned in order to highlight the rugged elegance of the chosen materials and to showcase a few specially chosen pieces of art. there is a pure, elemental style that is timeless, linking the user to the essence of spiritual experience.
