Dominican University Chapel & Library

CLIENT: Dominican University
LOCATION: River Forest, IL

The chapel renovation was designed to accommodate a wide range of religious activities. The flexible seating and mobile liturgical elements allow the University to reconfigure the space for different types of services and denominations. The design incorporates contemporary elements within the historical framework.

This impressive renovation also included the refurbishment of Dominican University’s original library into a new student center, study area and archive library. Today, this traditional setting is an evocative reminder of the University’s beginnings.
