St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, Farmingdale, NY
Traditional Style Lights
St. Luke’s Lutheran Church was considering renovating.
They wanted to redo their upholstery and carpet for a new look.
St. Luke’s also had lighting problems. They had three aging fixtures in the center of the sanctuary ceiling, providing the only light in the church.
The church had beautiful original fixtures, but they were not providing sufficient light for the sanctuary.
After contacting other companies and getting the response that they would need to replace the fixtures, they contacted us.
We were the only company that gave them the option to restore and upgrade their existing fixtures.
Artech met with the Church and proposed suggestions for changes to the lighting fixtures. The existing church lighting fixtures had one large bulb pointing straight down.
John’s recommendation was; to modify the outer decorative band to hold six halogen down lights, angled to provide a wide spread of light.
Additionally, six compact fluorescent interior lights would provide illumination, in all directions.
In the above photograph, John is working with the pastor to select the finish color for the fixtures.
The proposal was accepted and we took the fixtures to our shop for refitting.
We finished the renovation and re-installed the fixtures.
The new acrylic panels allow a cleaner white light, from the central cylinder, and the additional bulbs light the entire cylinder. This resolved the problem of the singular center light source.
The angled down lights now allow light to reach the entire sanctuary.
