Winchester Cathedral


As part of the refurbishment of the Venerable Chapel at Winchester Cathedral, Luke Hughes collaborated with artist Rachel Schwalm to create a new altar. The final design incorporates a glazed, blue-pigmented window that mirrors the chapel’s architecture as well as recessed LED lighting. The altar itself was cut in Carrara using Jerusalem limestone and was installed by the Cathedral Works Department.

In addition, Luke Hughes also designed new benches and desks in the Chapel which feature a blue sycamore inlay echoing Schwalm’s altar panel.
