Inspired Spaces were invited to the Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Concord to help with their upcoming transformation. The Church was wanting to be more appealing to a younger congregation and their brief was to update the church, create calmness and ambiance along with practical, attractive finishes and bring it into the current century.
On our first site visit it was easy to see the potential. As we were shown around the church we took notes and photos while discussing needs and requirements.
Inspired Spaces then went away to work on a colour scheme and gather samples including carpet, tiles and cabinetry options.
Throughout the design process, communication with all key players was paramount to ensure a final design that fulfilled all the brief requirements.
The final scheme was presented to the Church Committee using a mood board, along with larger samples and swatches to help with visualisation.
Before and After
Here are a few before and after shots to show the amazing transformation:
The front entry went from looking tired and bland to fresh and inviting – the walls were painted a classic navy blue, with crisp white trims and beautiful seamless floor tiles to maximise impact on arrival. Despite the dark wall colour the entry is lighter and brighter than before with the fresh, clean contrasting white.
The existing Sanctuary was dominated by the large amount of timber in the space which made it feel dark and cluttered, with everywhere else being off-white.
By removing some of the timber and using a neutral colour palette it made the space feel open and bright. It also created a softness and a calm ambiance with visual interest added by beautiful blue, handblown glass pendant lights. The blue carpet highlights but grounds the rostrum and unifies the space with the entry nicely.
