Our Lady Of Mt. Carmel
Our Lady Of Mt. Carmel
Herrin, IL
This brick, 1927, Romanesque-styled church required a complete interior renovation that included a new HVAC, lighting, pews, wood and porcelain tile floor, painting and decoration that included faux marble columns, gilding, and glazing.  All sanctuary furnishings were designed fabricated and install by The Studios of Potente, Inc.

A 5,000 sq. ft. gathering space matching the architectural style of the original building was added, providing two new ramped entrances, restrooms, and small kitchen facility. A marble, tile, wood, glass, and metal moving-water font and pool join the old and the new structures.  A 3,000 sq. ft. portico spans the width of both structures providing good weather gathering space and has proven to be a great place for wedding photos.
