Colombiere Jesuit Community Residence & Chapel
The Colombiere Community Residence and Chapel is situated on a scenic site in northwest Baltimore. The Chapel lies at the heart of the Jesuit Community, occupying a central place in the overall plan of the residence, which houses 38 priests and brothers. The siting of the Chapel is anchored by an axial relationship with a majestic 100-year-old beech tree to the south and a formal courtyard to the north, recalling the Jesuit’s mission within urban communities around the world. A whimsical screen, crafted of steel plate and perforated ash panels, produces a visual effect that recalls the dappled light through the beech tree’s broad canopy.
Alfred Dragani completed this project while an architect and senior designer at Bohlin Cywinski Jackson.
