St. Teresa's Lace

Windmoor Center and Chapel of St. Joseph St. Teresa’s Academy

Designed by Gould Evans and Associates, The Windmoor Center and Chapel of St. Joseph at St. Teresa’s Academy is a 10,000-square-foot building that houses four high-tech classrooms that transform into a single event space for banquets and the new 150-seat chapel.

The building will become the gateway to the campus and serve as the southern enclosure for the college-like campus quad area. A survey of students and faculty identified a need for a contemplative space that is flooded with light. To exemplify the core principles of the school and its original founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, Gould Evans worked with local fabricator A. Zahner Company to develop the most distinctive aspect of the design, a delicate, feminine metal veil that shrouds the outside of the structure and evokes the school’s namesake, St. Teresa, the patron saint of Lacemakers.

Zahner was brought in early to design-engineer and build the facade.
