New Life Covenant Church needed space for their quickly grow­ing con­gre­ga­tion in the urban set­ting of the Hum­boldt Park com­mu­nity of Chicago. They had been wor­ship­ing for 12 years in a rented high school audi­to­rium and were des­per­ately need­ing space of their own. Their new 27,000 square foot wor­ship facil­ity fea­tures an audi­to­rium for reli­gious assem­bly that seats 1,000 people. The site con­tains an out­door plaza area at the south­east corner which fea­tures Selux Exelia lights.

The Exelia, with its sleek pro­file and visual com­fort, grace­fully illu­mi­nates the New Life Covenant Church, com­ple­ment­ing the River of Life” theme that is car­ried through­out.

  • A visually comfortable and energy efficient pedestrian pathway luminaire, perfect for a designer in need of a column with no uplight and high performance. Whether you are illuminating pathways, courtyards, entrances or parks, Exelia provides comfort and security, while adding to the beautiful landscape. Exelia offers beautiful, clean lighting with three different possible light engines - Selux proprietary Gen5 silicone optics or Tritec stackable light modules. IES Type II and V distributions are available with IDA-Approved “Dark Sky Friendly” full cutoff distribution.
