Daprato Rigali Studios was hired to design, plan and manage the complete interior renovation and restoration of the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Peoria, IL. The project was completed in July 2016.
Daprato Rigali began the project by designing customized fundraising flyers and brochures, to inform parishioners of the possibility of memorial donations. Daprato Rigali then completed several colored renderings to help facilitate the design and color-selection process. Once all details were selected, the process began to return the design of the church back to the 19th century Victorian neo-Gothic structure.
Work Included: Re-plastering and repair of water damage, stained glass window restoration, altar and furnishings restoration, new marble flooring in the nave and sanctuary was installed, new painted angels installed in the apse in the sanctuary, and a beautiful blue ceiling was painted the length of the nave – decorated with the heavenly theme of a starry night sky.
