Provo 9th and 19th Ward Chapel Interior

This is a great example of a beautiful and striking mid-century building that is both a product of its time while remaining in the overall confines of a standard plan. Some unique features include exposed wooden structural columns, a magnificent continuous wood paneling that links together the organ, rostrum, ceiling, chapel, cultural hall and stage together into one unifying element. Additionally there is a “cry room” at the right front side of the room connected by a window with great views of the rostrum. Finally there are two fixed pulpits, both off-center; one for speakers and one for the chorister. The window at the left side of the photo will be covered tomorrow.
