Jesuit Community Center wins design award

The American Institute of Architects recognized New Haven’s Gray Organschi Architects for the original and eco-friendly design of the Fairfield Jesuit Community Center.

Builder PAC Group of Harwinton and landscape architect Reed Hilderbrand of Massachusetts were also recognized for the center. The three companies cumulatively won the 2010 Builders’ Choice Award.

“It rescues damaged European beech from the site to fabricate altar furniture in such a way as to preserve the grain of wood and at the same time to celebrate the meditative simplicity of the whole,” the judges wrote of the building.
