HOW A NEW SANCTUARY IS REDEFINING SPACE FOR MODERN SPIRITUALITY
Principal Peter Newman speaks with Curbed, a national design and real estate blog, about Newman Architect’s inspiration for the design of Snyder Sanctuary at Lynn University in Boca Raton, FL. The goal was to create a secular space “that opens your mind and heart and allows you to take that spiritual journey”.
Snyder Sanctuary is an abstract form drawn from the natural world and ancient architecture, fostering feelings of wonder and awe. The building is used not only for religious and spiritual services, but activities that require a space of peace and contemplation, like yoga classes, retreats, and other student activities.
