Lakewood Church Houston, TX
- Client: Lakewood Church
- Architect: Morris Architects and Studio Red
One of the largest churches in the nation, the 16,000 seat space for the Lakewood Church (Joel Osteen) is actually a converted sports arena, formerly home to Houston’s NBA and NHL teams. LDA’s scope included all public interior spaces, including the arena sanctuary space, and all exterior façade and landscape lighting. The arena space alone utilized more than 350 theatrical spots to light the audience. Color changing LED floods dramatically illuminate the 40 foot square ceiling elements, which are comprised of a mesh material stretched between existing catwalks 80 ft. above the arena floor.
