St. Agnes Church
In December 1992, a fire destroyed a large portion of St. Agnes Church and Parish complex in midtown Manhattan. Acheson Doyle Partners, in conjunction with Thomas Thorton Architect, was engaged immediately after the fire to coordinate the stabilization of the remaining structure and prepare restoration drawings. Space planning and programming meetings with the parish council added social and pastoral functions to the church redesign. ADP also explored potential zoning development on adjacent church properties. Rebuilding began in early 1994 and was completed in 1997. The new facade is a Neo-Roman design and replaces a Civil War-era gothic design.
