OhioHealth Riverside methodist Hospital - Chapel and Pastoral Care Offices
Columbus, OH
<< Back to Project List
OhioHealth commissioned Rogers Krajnak Architects, Inc. to redesign the existing chapel on the first floor of Riverside Methodist Hospital. The goal of the project included the creation of interfaith meditation spaces that accommodate individuals and groups from various faith traditions. The curved pathway entrance to the meditation spaces is easily perceived from the lobby and is highlighted by colorful illuminated panels with various symbols and images from the five major world religions.

This is a place of warmth, comfort and quietness. The large meditation space is approximately eight hundred square feet and easily accommodates thirty people seated in chairs. The lighting, acoustics and flexibility for arranging this room allow for a variety of religious services in this sacred space. The recessed in the east wall accommodate acoustical panels and illuminated translucent imagery panels featuring images of a sunlit landscape.
