cox graae + spack architects designed the new Chapel and Performing Arts Center building on St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes School’s Upper School campus as the last piece of the school’s New Century Campaign, updating and providing major improvement at all three of their campuses. The facility’s 500-seat theater, featuring abundant natural light through clerestory windows and a dramatic stained glass window complementing the stage, provides a much-needed venue for the upper school to collectively gather for chapel and assemblies. The lower level of the Center provides rehearsal, administrative, and other program support spaces. The building’s iconic bell tower houses a small devotional chapel.
