The Lounge

Physical accessibility

The physical accessibility of the lounge is our current big project. We are actively communicating with the church who provides the space to evaluate possible solutions.

  • Soft lighting is typically used (fairy lights draped around the room), fluorescent lighting used sometimes
  • Fluorescent lights that can’t be turned off have light filters attached
  • Kitchen uses exclusively fluorescent lighting
  • Many events utilize the TV for presentations; can be quite bright
