San Fernando Cathedral Center

This is a fun little building I stumbled on to during a recent trip to San Antonio. Designed by Fisher Heck Architects, and situated directly adjacent to the historic San Fernando Cathedral, it manifests in a very simple and well executed building with hisorical & contextual materials coupled with a contemporary design. The proportions are nice and the gided bris-soleil bring a welcome touch of wood to street level while providing a functional element to help shield against the Texas sun. I didn’t get a chance to go inside, but from the street one could see quite a bit of activity.
