Saint Mary Mercy Chapel Dichroic Window

Livonia, Michigan

Materials play an important role in transforming a variety of experiences of light within the chapel including an 18’ custom dichroic glass window that extends from a history of stained glass windows and the rich washes of color that dynamically change over the course of a day or through the seasons. Detroit Metal Elements fabricated the frame for the 18’ dichroic window.


PLY+ has worked with Detroit Metal Elements (DME) over the last 4+ years on many of our custom metal projects. DME’s extensive knowledge in the process of metal fabrication brings value to the projects they are involved in. DME listened carefully to our design intent and worked with our designers to problem solve and execute the best fabrication that kept our projects within budget. I highly recommend Detroit Metal Elements for custom metal fabrication.
