The section profile transforms from a rectangular to a triangle as it goes from the main entrance to the altar. In order to enhance the sanctity as it goes inward, we tried to get an extraordinary light effect by gradually changing angle of the wall.In order to reduce the heat gain, we reduced the number of big openings while various small openings are manipulated for natural ventilation. Glulam is used for the main structure, and most of the building materials are supplied in the local area.
