Places of worship
Churches and cathedrals are major community buildings, many of them rich in history, sentiment and architectural significance. Cathedrals in particular, serve a very broad constituency, including both regular worshippers and ‘transitory’ visitors, civic or community dignitaries, the diocesan team, local schools and tourists – all of whom use the space differently.
Today’s cathedral must provide space for private prayer and reflection, corporate worship, meetings, concerts and drama, educational assemblies and guided or unguided tours. The right furniture can make this flexibility a reality.
