St. Luke's United Methodist Church
Location: Houston, Texas
St Luke's United Methodist Church asked Jackson & Ryan Architects to update the sanctuary including compliance with the new Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, acoustics, lighting, new technology and easier access to the altar.
New marble stairs were installed, opening up the altar area to the congregation and allowing easier access for choir performances as well as wedding ceremonies. The replacement of the carpet with light-colored slate allowed the light-filled feeling of the worship area to remain while creating a grand acoustical space.
The chandeliers were completely restored and reviewed to allow for a modern lighting system, making available a wide range of lighting options.
