Crossgates tasked Wier Boerner Allin with several interior renovations to its church, including:
- connecting the main public concourses to the sanctuary space;
- adding information kiosks to aid church visitors;
- renovating the church nursery with a new child check-in station; and
- adding an informal meeting space with point of sale for coffee and refreshments.
The project also included updating finishes with a unified interior palette the church can employ in future renovations. The unique challenges associated with the project included carrying out a complex renovation to the major public areas while the church was occupied and in use, opening up and simplifying circulation pinch points for large crowds at peak use times and adding visual interest to otherwise cavernous spaces.
