Abstract: Celebrated architect Christ J. Kamages builds faith. And when Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc. (SGH) was offered the opportunity to structure one of his crown jewels, it was truly a humbling experience for the entire design team. St. Nicholas Constantine and Helen is a Greek Orthodox church complex in Roseland, N.J. The project consists of a main church building, a school building, a central rotunda and a gymnasium/social hall. Spread over 39,000 sq. ft, the complex is a visual delight with the centerpiece being the main church building with its characteristic Byzantine design.
