Project Description

Many churches are cluttered by the necessary additional paper flyers and bulletins that are used to communicate with the parishioners and which often detract from a clean entry space, narthex and worship space. The intent of the kiosks above was to provide furniture for storage and the return of song sheets as parishioners left the Worship Space. Their neutral color and rounded ends allows them to visually recede but be located within the main circulation routes where they are most needed.

The benches within the Narthex provide a quick seat for waiting parishioners and in their simplicity allow the floor plane and view outside to remain the dominant qualities of this Church Narthex.
