Located in the heart of Midtown Memphis, the new Cathedral Center at Immaculate Conception provides a new home for their Early Childhood Center, Art Classrooms, Admin offices, and meeting rooms, as well as a state-of-the-art Library & Technology center.
The new building connects to all floors of the existing 3-story, 1922 Neo-classical elementary school, providing much needed elevator access and bathrooms. The exterior design, clad in the campus’ signature yellow brick with pre-cast detailing, complements the existing campus architecture, as well as the bungalow architecture of the surrounding neighborhoods. “I marveled that the completed Cathedral Center was far more beautiful than I ever imagined it would be. ANF, as architects, developed a creative and colorful group of early childhood classrooms, and an imaginative library/media center for our high school and elementary school. From concept through planning and final execution, ANF was always there for us. We could not be more pleased with the quality of ANF’s work.” - Father Val Handwerker
