The Korte Company constructed the new Shrine of Our Lady of La Vang in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Shrine is a replica of the Shrine of Our Lady of La Vang in the Hai Phu Village in Mai Linh County, Vietnam. The original shrine commemorated the appearance of the Virgin Mary in 1798 but was leveled during the Vietnam War, leaving only the bell tower and shrine standing. The Las Vegas shrine recreates the original bell tower and shrine using granite-tile cladding and accent painting to enhance the tilt-up exterior. The interior space is optimized for the Shrine’s multiple roles as museum, place of worship, and performance stage for cultural events.
We’re a church construction company with deep experience building across the U.S., and this is one of the finest centers of worship we’ve built. We’re humbled to be part of history through this memorable project.
