Loyola Medical Center: Galvin Chapel

Report on ecumenical service changes, Illumination, and mechanical needs

The existing large chapel needed modifications to reflect the ecumenical changes and to accommodate the pastoral care and patient needs in counseling by providing allotted space.

Three schemes illustrated various intimacy concepts including sanctuary design for ecumenical requirements and space for pastoral care. Additionally, an evaluation of the stained glass windows depicting the Beatitudes lacked color rendition because the chapel floor level was below grade level with the windows positioned in a recessed well with little natural light.

Our lighting consultant developed an artificial indirect illumination system that restored the color rendition, as well as addressed the proper reading light and, in particular, highlighting the sanctuary cross, religious statues, and the Stations of the Cross.
