Thoughts

What was once a dark and uninviting sanctuary is now a light and airy worship space that honors the memories of the building before it. We worked collaboratively  with the church on a full interior renovation of their existing 1,000 seat facility overhauling the entire building's interior design to fit a more contemporary aesthetic. Existing mechanical and electrical systems were overhauled in favor of more energy efficient systems and the acoustics in the room were greatly improved thanks to strategically designed acoustic wall and ceiling treatments. In keeping with the intended light & airy feel of the room, the central skylight over the altar was restored to bring light through an existing circular stained glass window and become one of main focal points of the space once again.
