At its last meeting before the summer, Consistory had cleared the way for an open meeting of the Liaison Committee to decide on the colors for the interior design of the community space beneath the new sanctuary. This means that the meeting was open to all interested church members.
When the meeting took place on July 16, we enjoyed great professional support: Architects Jeff Venezia and Gary Wagner were present, and so was Designer Peter Saechew from Jeff Venezia’s office. Ten members of the church were present.
Here are some of the results: The floor color will be the same in the community space as well as in the new sanctuary. The walls of the community space will have a “Dutch reference”: blue, white and orange. The fabric of the furniture there will feature a geometric southwestern design in blue tones.
And of course, choices of interior design never fail to bring excitement. One of the reasons for this is the fact that interior design is oftentimes first discussed when the end of construction is in sight. This holds true in our case as well, and we certainly had a sense of this during our site visit to the new old church!
