Text description provided by the architects. The architecture for this Protestant Church is centered by a wide nave arranged with six arches and a bell tower that symbolically lay importance on the seven elements, the seven days of creation, the seven churches of the Orient… We create the impression of a biblical open sky image from which the light amid the Holy Spirit descends upon the followers and worshippers.

The softly curved arches specifically designed for fine acoustics also remind of a hand overwhelming the crowd. For the use as an authentic concert hall facility the temple displays the comfort of lodges discreetly positioned right from within the arches.
