Tender loving care and concealment were the charges of this lighting design
Lighting for this awe-inspiring chapel within a working seminary never had been updated. Ross De Alessi turned what was a dimly lit area into a celebration of architecture and light for education, contemplation and prayer. All of the new lighting is concealed within the body of the architecture.
