Recipient of the Texas State Golden Trowel Award

The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter Chancery was the winner of the statewide Golden Trowel Award. This office building was seamlessly integrated into the 30-year-old parish of Our Lady of Walsingham as the first phase of an expansion program.

Each year the Texas Masonry Council recognizes outstanding architects with this award. It cited Jackson & Ryan Architects' carefully detailed effort to evoke the historical atmosphere of the architectural style preferred by the Ordinariate - from the cast stone and wood-trimmed arched windows, to the original artwork commissioned in Italy, to the intricate use of the Golden Section proportion in determining the placement of every line, window, door and string course on the facades.
