Basilica of St. Mary

Schuler Shook designed the lighting renovation and the control system for the sanctuary, the exterior, and the new chapel. The lighting design accentuates the worship service through the illumination of the sanctuary, altar, and religious artifacts. The exterior lighting design enhances the architecture and provides an evening presence on the skyline. Constraints included integration of the luminaries within the historic architectural fabric and developing a catwalk system above an existing cornice to allow lamp replacement and light fixture aiming at 60 feet above the altar.
