Church of St. Alphonsus, Seattle, WA

IMG_1710St. Alphonsus is located in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood at the corner of 15th Avenue and 58th Street. Built in 1962, it replaced the previous church, rectory and convent. Among its mid-century features are the well-proportioned entrance canopy on tapered legs, striking bell tower and interior details.  The church was built in 1962.

The entire religious complex was designed by the firm of Johnston-Campanella, who were prolific designers of Catholic churches and related buildings, as well as churches for other denominations, public schools, libraries, and even an airport control tower.
