Church of the Holy Cross, New York, NY

Architect: DCAK-MSA Architecture

Award: AIA Design Honor Award (2010)

The architect's vision for beautiful light quality in the interior of the church became the guiding principle in the lighting design.

This mid-century Catholic church on 42nd Street in New York was designated for restoration in 2006. The architect’s vision for beautiful light quality in the interior of the church became the guiding principle in the lighting design. Throughout the design and fabrication stages, Crenshaw worked closely with DCAK-MSA Architecture to create new fixtures that would complement the architecture of the church while providing the desired luminosity to the interior space. The finished project garnered an AIA Design Honor Award in 2010.
