Robert Carr Chapel Renovation
Ft. Worth, Texas
The Robert Carr Chapel at TCU is a popular wedding venue, but the beautiful Georgian space is also used for worship services, memorials, concerts and Greek organization initiations. Utilized by a variety of on- and off-campus stakeholders for a wide variety of events with sometimes conflicting requirements, the chapel was in need of major functional improvements. The rehabilitation project focused on increasing the flexibility and usability of the space, on improving accessibility, convenience and security both for the disabled and for general users, and on enhancing aesthetics and refreshing finishes. Specific interventions included improvements to lighting and acoustics, integration of audio/visual technology, enlarging the chancel and making its fixtures movable.
