Why are the windows different on the sides of the sanctuary?
The courtyard windows, which face north, are large to maximize natural light in the sanctuary. The Whalley Avenue side faces south. The wooden louvers on the Whalley side are designed to minimize glare from direct sunlight during the day.
Louvers are notorious dust collectors. How about encasing the louvers between two panes of glass? Or using glass with some kind of screening element?
Based on congregant feedback, the Sanctuary Redesign Committee has asked the architect to consider alternatives. If the final design retains the window louvers, we will work with our facilities manager, Michael Barone, to find a safe and reasonable way to dust them.
