This is a renovation of a daily mass chapel for a large parish church in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. The pastor desired to create a place of prayer and devotion that would support and honor the liturgy. The chapel is dedicated to Saint Thérèse, the Little Flower, and occasioned the commissioning of a new stained glass window of the saint within the sanctuary. The addition of a new marble slab floor and a custom wood and marble altar are the focus of the project. With a limited budget, the design called for research in inexpensive materials and the creative use of color.
