Central Seventh-Day Adventist Church
5 N. Skinker Boulevard, St. Louis
Date: 1957

Stained Glass: Emil Frei Stained Glass (unconfirmed)

A small, simple A-frame design, not far from Wash U's campus. The interior is wood-framed simplicity, with large expanses of colored panes. In the windows behind the pulpit, a flurry of abstract designs erupt in a tall, narrow strip of vertical windows.

The rear and side windows are much simpler. Random colored panes color the side openings, while in the back, a red-hued vertical window mirrors the more elaborate composition in front.

The entryway features a lovely bit of Mid-Century detailing.
