Saint Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church that located in Springdale, United States, was designed by Marlon Blackwell Architect. The interior vertical surfaces of the church are bathed in light and colour accents with limited articulation. The horizontal surfaces are expressive, revealing priorities and hierarchies. In the fellowship hall, the original concrete slab and the roof structure of the metal shop building are exposed, revealing the origins of the building. As one passes through the candle-lit narthex, the ceiling gradually descends above a floor of oak, compressing the visitor before passing under the sky-lit tower that marks the entry into the sanctuary oriented to the east.
The oak floor continues into the worship space while a dome hovers above the parishioners. Large swinging doors allow the 100 seat sanctuary to expand into the fellowship hall in times of overflow, which accommodates additional visitors for holiday services. At the east end, the ceiling is carved away to allow for a 30 foot wide transom of translucent glass that bathes the sanctuary in soft light for morning services.
