St. Peter Claver Catholic School Renovations & Addition

Manning Architects provided architectural services for the renovations and addition to St. Peter Claver Catholic Central School, which originally opened its doors in 1921. Renovations included a multi-function auditorium/cafeteria that required exterior envelope improvements, which maintained the school’s historic presence and character within the Tremé community. The new building houses additional classrooms, administrative offices, conference rooms, a library, and kitchen. Manning Architects also designed an exterior walkway canopy that connects the school buildings to the St. Peter Claver Catholic Church, located on the school’s grounds. Manning worked with local artists to create artwork which is placed throughout the property. Energy conservation, life cycle, and durability were addressed in all aspects of the design and construction of the school. The project was completed as part of the FEMA Alternate Project.
