Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland, CA was featured as one of Architectural Record’s most important works of architecture since the magazine was first published in 1891. Architectural Record’s, “Celebrating 125 Years: The Past” features a variety of buildings from all over the globe. The magazine determined its nominations with the help of distinguished critics and scholars.
The Cathedral of Christ the Light by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill was completed in 2008 and sits at the former location of the St. Francis de Sales parish that was destroyed by the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989.
Enclos was selected to provide design/build services for the cathedral’s enclosure system of 46,000 square feet of custom unitized curtainwall, 6,000 square feet of point-fixed glass walls, 10,000 square feet of custom metal panels, 8,000 square feet of storefront, 9,000 square feet of skylights, and 69,000 square feet of glass.
