St. Andrew's Episcopal Church
The interior renovation includes a newly designed ceiling that covers the original steel beams and allows ambient lighting to saturate the nave. The ceiling design greatly improves the room's acoustics, allowing the church's newly restored pipe organ to achieve it's full potential. The chapel, once uninviting and underused, was redesigned as a semi-private space filled with sunlight. Dark painted wood trim and millwork was replaced with custom designed clear finished red oak. New audio-visual controls provide a range of settings for a variety of worship environments.

"...the new church dignifies a historic plot of ground and pulls together a diverse assorment of buildings ... The considerable height of the new structure is perfectly calculated to be dominant but not domineering ... the clerestory reinforces a sacred axis encompassing symbols of death and rebirth ... It's an unpretentious yet subtly dramatic space..."
