Flatirons Community Church

Walking into the tiered entryway of this building, you feel like you have more room to breathe. The architecture interacts with the sky and mimics it—very appropriate for a spiritual center framed by our majestic Rocky Mountains.

In our project design, we incorporated electrical and lighting systems to accommodate a 60,000 square foot open mall. We created this space for members to build community, have deep discussions and share information. Features included: a fireplace, kitchen, café seating area, check-in kiosks, column televisions and projectors, an education wing mixing classrooms and teaching areas with projection walls and stage lighting, a youth wing with a multi-purpose room, kitchen, and flexible break-out room, an administrative office area and an auditorium with a mezzanine that would seat 4,000 people.

We designed high bay fluorescents in open-to-structure spaces to provide the ambient lighting in the mall with jelly jars integrated throughout highlighting different uses of the space. In the auditorium and multi-purpose room, we included both high bay fluorescents for work lighting, incandescent cylinders for house lighting, provided power for future LED lighting and roughed-in stage lighting.
