Santa Catalina School Chapel Monterey, California

SANTA CATALINA SCHOOL CHAPEL, MONTEREY

BFS Landscape Architects have had a longstanding relationship with Santa Catalina School providing thoughtful design to compliment the historic setting in which the campus sits. The Rosary Chapel, built in the 1950s, is clad with iconic Carmel stone, custom stained-glass windows and is a treasured space for both students, alumni and local community. BFS was commissioned by the School to provide a landscape that demonstrated the school’s commitment to reducing water use as well as creating a large outdoor event space. BFS designed a landscape in the Mediterranean planting style, using native and drought tolerant plant massings. Through the use of stone and brick in the entry plaza, BFS seamlessly extended the chapel entrance and framed the Chapel’s icon mahogany entry doors with large specimen Olive trees. Transforming the landscape has given the Chapel a sense of prominence and distinction.
