Calvary Church in Lancaster, PA is big. REALLY BIG! The 12,000 square foot lobby was recently renovated by Sims Architects. The task of renovating and modernizing this lobby included architectural design, interior design, furniture selection, finish selection, graphics / wayfinding, and an increase of usable area by over 20%.
Sims Architects had produced a few computer renderings that I was asked to closely match. The side by side comparison of computer concept to reality is quite amazing! The general progression of the following images is from left to right of the lobby.
One fun design feature was the collection of large wood pendant lights that hung above the staircase. What great design! The scale of these globes fills the empty space and draws visitor attention to the courtyard outside as well.
