Western Theological Seminary- Mulder Chapel

Renovation of a 1950's-era Colonial chapel on a Midwestern seminary campus, classic in layout and appearance but limiting in use and lacking in media capabilities. The owner desired a refreshed space for a variety of activities in a variety of seating configurations. Primary use is daily chapel services conducted by seminary students as part of their training in exploring fresh ideas in worship planning. Secondary uses include wedding, funerals, organ and chamber recitals and lectures.

"Stepping into our Elevate Studio-designed and newly renovated worship space, the Mulder Chapel at Western Theological Seminary, is like stepping into a parallel universe... no, it is better than that, it's like waking up and realizing you are in heaven! All of us at WTS could not be more thrilled or grateful." - Timothy Brown, President, Western Theological Seminary
