In December 2004, Rogers Krajnak Architects, Inc. received a Merit Award from the Columbus Chapter of the American Institute of Architects for the renovation of Trinity Episcopal Church in Toledo, Ohio. The project was selected from 38 entries in the 2004 Honors Awards Program. The jury commented on the successful integration of new interior elements and exterior additions to this Civil War era church.

The project is a combination of restoration, renovation and new construction. The nave, chancel, gallery, gathering area and entry vestibule were extensively renovated to incorporate new lighting, sound and mechanical systems as well as new wood flooring, painted wall decoration and painted ceiling decoration.

The baptismal font and the altar are wonderful combinations of old and new. The 1876 marble infant font and the new hexagonal immersion pool are integrated together to provide for the baptism of infants and adults. The freestanding marble, limestone and mosaic tile altar, a reworking of the former high altar, is placed on a limestone “rug” which is further defined by four new brass candle stands.
