Grace Episcopal Church

A celebrated historic landmark established in 1839, Grace Episcopal Church is the oldest church in Madison.  Known for its Gothic-style limestone architecture and distinctive red doors outside, the church features historic details including hand-carved woodwork, brilliant stained glass windows – including a Tiffany window – and cathedral organ. An English style outdoor courtyard garden connects to a contemporary addition.

TKWA was hired to prepare a multi-phase, multi-year master plan that addressed a variety of functional space deficiencies and to provide more inviting spaces with improved way-finding in which to engage the congregation and visitors.
