Lighting Designer – Jill Klores with Essential Light Design Studio, Dallas, Texas


Highland Park United Methodist Church Dallas, Texas

Case Study
FSG partnered with an award-winning lighting designer to install LED lighting in a 93-year old church in Dallas, TX.


Highland Park United Methodist Church (HPUMC), located in the highly affluent town of Highland Park, TX, wanted to upgrade the lighting design in its stunning 93-year-old sanctuary so they partnered with award-winning Lighting Designer, Jill Klores. She needed professionals that knew electrical and lighting and took great care with the antique structure. Knowing not just any company could execute Klores' vision, naturally, HPUMC reached out to FSG to take it over the finish line. The sanctuary's architecture and features including massive wood beams and stained glass throughout presented complexities.


FSG partnered with HPUMC's technical team to gain a deeper understanding of how lighting is employed in this specific environment. Consequently, the FSG team used its vast expertise to implement a lighting design that brought a theatrical presence to the sanctuary, highlighted the remarkable architecture, and complemented the stunning natural light pouring in from the stained glass windows. For example, the arched architectural detailing and the warm wood altar were highlighted with gentle, diffuse lighting, and focused, warm light paid subtle tribute to the eloquent scriptures painted around the top interior sanctuary walls. Additionally, FSG installed multiple control settings to accompany the various events that occur in the church: bright and warm to convey vibrancy and hope for weddings and other special events as well as cooler, more solemn settings for Sunday services or funerals. With all the complex challenges, the type executed complex solutions in typical FSG fashion, we delivered a finished product that thrilled both HPUMC and Klores. The FSG team could not be more proud of this project!
