recently completed: the woodlands first baptist church



The Woodlands First Baptist Church exterior lighting.


G2LD is proud to have partnered with Studio Red Architects on the recent addition and remodel of The Woodlands First Baptist Church. The scope of the lighting design work included exterior facade lighting, including pedestrian and landscape lighting, as well as a new entry lobby and great hall and an addition and remodel of the existing sanctuary.

As a part of the sanctuary remodel and addition, the lighting design team specified all new LED downlights to replace the existing inefficient incandescent. The efficient new downlights have an exceptionally long-life, minimizing maintenance concerns, emit almost no heat, saving on air-conditioning costs, and are easily dimmable. The team at G2LD ran photometric calculations to ensure that all the spaces in the 1200 seat sanctuary were comfortably and evenly lit for all occupants.

Cylindrical LED pendants in the entry lobby were a dramatic, yet efficient, way to draw visitors in to the new Great Hall. Placed in staggered rows, they convey a sense of movement as one navigates the expansive circulation space.

Staggered rows of graceful LED pendants lead visitors into the Great Hall at The Woodlands First Baptist Church. In single height spaces, the light levels make a seamless transition where we change to recessed downlights. Recessed wallwashers on both upper and lower levels highlight the central grey stone wall.



The Great Hall, which can seat up to 650 people plus a stage, was lit with efficient LED pendants, making the lighting adjustable for a wide variety of functions.

The end result is a beautiful and dramatic, yet efficient, addition to a growing community church.
