St. Luke's Lutheran Church | Waukesha, WI
GROTH Design Group partnered with St. Luke’s Congregation to renovate their place of worship. The goals of the endeavour were to enhance liturgical celebration, support and encourage the arts and music programming in the space, keep current with changing technology, and create an inspiring and fresh aesthetic.
The design for the worship space recreated the chancel to be fully flexible for a variety of liturgies and programming. The platform is accessible to patrons of all physical abilities. The chancel backdrop attains the double task of masking audio-visual technology to support the liturgy and tempering the massive scale of the space. Natural lighting in the front is decreased and filtered. Windows for increased natural light are carved into the stone walls of the nave, and seating is redesigned for flexibility, accessibility and comfort.
