Architect: Casaccio Yu Architects

Lighting Design: Lighting Design Collaborative

St. Joseph parishioners contributed to the lighting design for their new sanctuary space.

The parish of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church was actively included alongside the lighting designer and architect in designing a collection of custom lantern pendants and sconces for its new sanctuary. The design centered around an octagonal lantern with half-round and quatrefoil applique detailing throughout, features that set these fixtures apart from most standard decorative church lighting. The core design was implemented in single-pendant and triple-cluster chandeliers. The end result, as finished photographs of the space convey, is a sense of serenity, grace, and order amidst complexity.
