Christ Methodist Church is a refreshing piece of architecture aimed to challenge and reimagine conventional design and archetypes of a church.
The excitement of the project stems from various aspects, from its characteristic wave-like formal expression, to its varying façades of illuminated tiny crosses, or elevation of dynamic light and linear installations, as well as its open and inviting social spaces.
Besides different incidents of intelligent dual uses of spaces, spatial interest is also created through its volumetric play at circulatory cores that connects different levels of communal spaces within. In material and tactile qualities, the soft colours and delicate textures of the internal wall surfaces provide a humbling and serene atmosphere that complements the spiritual setting of the building.
Overall, the jury compliments the architect for a well-executed building and a commendable effort with an inventive alternate interpretation of architecture of this nature.
