Grace Cathedral occupies a prominent site on the top of Nob Hill in San Francisco, but the church itself was obscured by a seismically unsafe Cathedral House and surrounded by a parking lot. The Cathedral Close renovations transformed the campus by moving the parking underground and relocating the Chapter House to the north side of the site, creating a courtyard encircled by the cathedral and its support buildings, including an addition to the Cathedral School. Grace Cathedral now reaches out to the city with a grand stair that spills down from the entryway, which houses Ghiberti’s famed “Gates of Paradise.”
