In conjunction with Mainstage Lighting Company, Chicago Flyhouse was called on to develop and install curtaining tracks in the 7,000 sq foot gymnasium of the newly constructed Celebration! Community Center at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church in Naperville.
To support the site’s use as a multi-purpose facility, Flyhouse developed a curtaining system to divide and disguise areas of the stage – allowing easy adjustment to accommodate larger or smaller productions – and that quickly converts the space from a sports area or banquet hall into a sanctuary for worship, or a concert hall for musical performances.
Flyhouse gave special design attention to accommodate the space’s unique back wall, which features a large retractable door. When the door is opened, the stage is completely exposed to an outdoor amphitheater area in the Center’s lawn. To support this unusual element, the entire drapery system can track around and swivel to face the outside area, reversing the stage’s “back” and “front.”
