The Cathedral of Christ the King is nearly eight decades old, and today is home to one of the ten largest parishes in the U.S. As a precursor to a much larger expansion project, the owner wished to upgrade the lighting and controls throughout the sanctuary. The challenge is to increase light levels and create an ethereal ambiance without making any visible changes to the existing building, which was designated the “Most Beautiful Building in Atlanta” by Architectural Record Magazine in 1939.
CD+M designed a conceptual scheme that accents the features of the French Gothic interiors and enhances illumination, without any perceptible changes to the enclosure or visible light fixtures.
