Holy Family Parish
Architect: JH&H Architects
Location: Pass Christian, MS
Holy Family Parish, part of the Catholic Diocese of Biloxi, MS is an excellent example of how traditional architecture, practical implementation of architectural acoustics and innovative AV design combine. As part of a continuing effort to rebuild the Mississippi Gulf Coast after the devestation of Hurricane Katrina, Holy Family Parish is a shining example of great architectural design, attention to detail and a sustained effort to maximize resources.
With a mandate to maintain an acoustical space that supports a traditional Catholic service, the integration of non-invasive acoustical design and advanced electro-acoustics was critical in how this space works. The result is a glorious sounding space with high intelligibility and support for contemporary music performance at comfortable and enjoyable sound pressure levels.
