The committee is leaning toward a design that allows more light into the sanctuary and a more modern aesthetic. We received a lot of positive feedback about the new window above the ark. That design can’t accommodate the height of the current ark doors.
That said, in the next phase of the project we will be looking for an art consultant to work with the architect on recommendations for ornamentation. We will direct the consultant to consider the possibility of incorporating decorative elements that are currently in the sanctuary or in storage at BEKI.
