The building's light-weight volcanic rhyolite stone (from Douglas County, CO) permitted the height of the hexagonal corner tower as well as lending a rough, multi-colored texture to the facades. Tooled purple Utah sandstone was used for trim. Groupings of three, such as a triple arch at the entrance, allude to the Trinity.
The sanctuary seats 1200. Designed much like a theater with a large proscenium arch and 4000-pipe organ, it has excellent acoustics and is a popular venue for public performances.
The interior is influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement.
The stained glass windows were made by Healy and Millet of Chicago, who also worked for Louis Sullivan.
Electricity for the Roosevelt organ was originally provided by localized hydro-electric generation.
This building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
