San Mateo Episcopal Church recovery from Hurricane Harvey

Ever since hurricane Harvey damaged 4 of their 5 buildings, the small parish of San Mateo Episcopal Church continued their services in an open-air tent. That following October, they approached Transcend Architecture to assist them in documenting the condition of the existing conditions, guide them through the building codes and local ordinances, and provide design ideas for specific spaces in an effort to make the church more functional.
