From the beginning, the interior design approach was to carefully integrate and conceal lighting within the architecture. The traditional use of decorative fixtures was purposefully avoided to fully showcase the space.
To enhance the warmth of the exterior finishes, warm white ceramic metal halide lamping was utilized as the predominant light source. The bell tower base corners are illuminated with single in-grade uplights. In-grade spots push light up the vertical niches framing the main entry feature, and reveal the cross at the top.
