West Evangelical Free Church's Lobby Renovation

The West Evangelical Free Church hired WDM for a transformative renovation of the entry lobby and hallways. The goal was to craft an inviting, modern space that fosters warmth and comfort for everyone. This involved removing walls to create a larger commons area with fresh finishes to establish a welcoming atmosphere.

Updates included:

  • Flooring: Replaced outdated broadloom carpeting with durable, attractive carpet tiles and luxury vinyl tiles. A curved transition guides traffic toward the hallway and coffee bar area.
  • Lighting: Installed new LED fixtures above the curved transition for emphasis.
  • Ceiling: Revamped with a suspended blade system for a spacious, uplifting feel.
  • Wall Finishes: Freshly painted walls in contemporary light blue and neutrals, accented by tiles at the coffee bar.

The renovated space reflects the church’s dedication to inclusivity and hospitality.

Area: 8,000 s.f. renovation, +2,700 s.f. flooring replacement

Completed: 2023
