St. Ann

St. Ann

St. Ann Catholic Church was designed in the Spanish Colonial form, with the overall layout of the church building in a cruciform arrangement.  Main spaces within the church include a side chapel, baptistery, main nave and transepts, and curved apse.

A spacious sanctuary is situated directly below the massive main dome, which is 83 feet above.  Ancillary spaces (bride’s room, restrooms and sacristies) flank the east side of the church.  The new church building’s twin tower façade defines the south edge of a large outdoor plaza, which is further defined by the existing church building along the east, a new meeting room building along the north, and a wall along the west.  Cloistered walkways surround the plaza, along with a large decorative multi-tiered fountain at its center.


First in Class

Our experience with Alliance Architects has been first in class. Not only are they great communicators and designers but they also understand the owner mentality when it comes to cost and schedule. They are able to balance the aesthetics with functionality which is a huge plus in the markets we work in. I would recommend Alliance Architects to small and large developers.

Exceeded Expectations

Although the partnership is relatively young, I feel our relationship is decades old. Their flow of information, responsiveness to our requests, and dynamic needs as a complex developer, have exceeded expectations. We could have not developed Star Business Park in Frisco, Texas at this rate of speed and success without this strategic partnership. We’re looking forward to what the future brings.

Partnerships Are What Matter

KEDC’s partnership with Alliance Architects has played a large role in bringing multiple high-caliber projects to the table. Alliance lends a sleek, modern aesthetic to their designs, adding a layer of polish to the distinctive curb appeal of Synergy Park. Carlos and the Alliance team are sensitive to unique project needs and are quick to address any concerns from our clients.

Designed a State of the Art Facility

The challenge was not only to raise the money but design and build a modern “client choice” pantry to serve this “food desert” community and to find someone to design and lead the construction. Not only did Alliance Architects step up, they designed a state of the art facility that is now serving hundreds of families who are no longer going to bed hungry. And they did it all “pro bono”.

Expertise, Creativity and Speed

Alliance Architects not only provides great design precision once a project is moving forward, but is also side-by-side with the developer on the leading edge of chasing deals down. They have been a tremendous partner for Seefried Properties in this regard. Their willingness to go the extra mile to serve their clients is invaluable to the success of our efforts to pursue and execute on development projects. We have leaned on their expertise, creativity and speed to help the Seefried team provide the highest level of excellence to our tenants throughout an often complex and competitive development process.

Attentive and Responsive

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Alliance Architects on several K-12 projects for well over 10 years. On each of these, their staff has been attentive and responsive to the project’s needs and the Owner’s requirements. I know that I can trust the quality of the design documents and coordination among the consultants.

Delivered Dream Facility

We were very pleased with the services provided by Alliance Architects. The team was very easy to work with, and listened intently to our needs and desires for the new facility. Given the nature of our work, we needed a facility that was warm and welcoming for our clients and our staff, and yet very secure. Alliance was able to create a design that ensured security in several creative ways, while also creating a space that is beautiful, warm and full of natural light. Alliance was extremely helpful to us in keeping this design, even though we had to eliminate some elements due to costs skyrocketing during the pandemic.

Smooth Process

I am so pleased with the finished product of the second office in Dallas/Ft. Worth for our expanding brand – Christie’s International Real Estate. Weekly construction meetings, efficient change orders, and design direction/implementation led to a great experience. Working with the team at Alliance Architects, especially the white glove service provided by Kelsey Vogelgesang the entire way, allowed me to focus on growing my business and not worrying about what was happening at the site. I give them high marks and a full recommendation.
