Next Sketch Outing
Saturday March 25: International District
Interiors of the First Church of Christ Scientist
Sunday I went to the open house of the First Church of Christ Scientist which we sketched for sketch crawl in September
. The church has be broken up to 12 units opening up to the center as a common lobby. You would have to like walking stairs to want to purchase a unit. It is interesting to see that they kept all the detail along the exterior walls. New interior partition walls terminate at the detail, so you might have a portion of a door or portion of a pediment if the partition wall is located in the middle of a detail. I guess they wanted to save the historic pieces in place and express that this was an adaptive reuse of the building. I sat in the largest unit and did some quick sketches. Painted at home from photos.
By the way, I haven't been commenting on sketches because the blog won't let me leave a comment for some reason.

That would have been fun, wish I'd know it was happening. I like the way you include the ceilings. Winter in Washington is the time for interiors.ReplyDelete
