Mundane Mondays: Immaculate Conception Church, East Weymouth, MA

IMG_5933Today’s striking Mundane Monday entry was shared by Bob Thomas and could be considered anything but mundane. Immaculate Conception Church is located in Weymouth, MA, a city just south of Boston. The firm who designed the building, Holmes & Edwards, is still in business and have a speciality of doing religious properties in the area–with more than 30 ecclesiastical projects on their website, both mid-century but also more recent work.

Nothing else in their archive appears to have the same design heft as Immaculate Conception  with its tent-like roofline and zig zag eaves. The church was completed in 1967. The shot of the interior shows the soaring open space of the sanctuary, glowing under a wooden ceiling and a ring of vintage metal hanging light fixtures. Definitely worth a visit!
