St. Joseph Catholic Church, built in 1900, was scheduled for a significant interior renovation that included new finishes, plaster repair, woodwork restoration, and the cleaning and repair of artwork. This project was part of a more extensive restoration of the church that included life safety upgrades, a new HVAC system, and new lighting. Our efforts focused on illuminating the restored interiors with a holistic lighting approach that enhanced the church's architectural features and spectacular artwork with various integrated lighting applications.
