When properly designed, balcony seating has some benefits worth considering. Balconies can solve the problem of future expansion as the congregation grows and can enable a church with limited land to expand "up" rather than "out". In fan-shaped sanctuaries a balcony can increase the seating by almost 50%. A future balcony should be master-planned from the start with the major structure completed during the sanctuary construction. A removable wall can temporarily hide this unfinished space.
Always be mindful of the need for a suitable railing. This is essential for compliance with local building codes and for limiting homeowner liability. Fortunately, these structures can be as aesthetically pleasing as they are safe and supportive. You can choose from steel or stainless steel railing or decorative glass balustrades. The best options will both enhance user safety and create a visually appealing and mood-specific ambiance.
Some elements of good design include stairs or stadium seating on the sides with easy access to the main floor, two steps per row for added visibility, high-back pews to alleviate the fear of falling forward, glass or narrow rails in the upper half of balcony walls, and large-screen video monitors or projection screens.
2014 saw the number of roof garden design rocket with a number of high-profile designs achieving media coverage. Controversially by some, loved by others, London′s Sky Garden, a roof garden design within the Walkie Talkie building, incorporates landscapes that make the visitor feel as though they have walked over the brow of a hill to see the impressive London cityscape open up before them. Another roof garden design that made the press at the University of Greenwich, which unveiled 14 new roof garden designs within a purpose-built campus that provide outdoor spaces for students and academics. Another high-profile roof garden revealed late last year was the iconic Battersea Power Station whose design comprises a 355-metre long landscaped roof garden space that was designed by the architects behind New York′s High Line.
