Island Chruch - Bainbridge Island, WA


With a congregation digging deep into individual savings it was paramount that the optimum function and effect were achieved for this modest and simple church within what the budget would allow, while ensuring that standards of energy-efficiency were met for future running costs.

The church's sincere and unembellished mode of worship lent itself to a pared-back design but great care was nonetheless taken to balance the various sources of ambient light - diffuse pendants and sconces, indirect cove lighting, and downlights - with careful accents; the latter in particular being in a reception area that was conceived as a 'living room' for the community.

In addition, the lighting design had to take account of the theatrical-style lighting directed at the altar/stage, as well as the self-illuminated screens that broadcast songs and various messages within the church proper.
