Entry Description

The project is to design 2 floors of space with one entire floor as the main chapel and the other as office, classrooms and a secondary chapel, at a low budget.
Based upon the name of the church, “Jesus Is Lord” over the life and death. The design is inspired by the birth and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He was born in a manger in a stone feeding trough for animals. Upon His death, He was put inside a stone tomb which is somewhat similar to the feeding trough at His birth. Our design of the backdrop of the main chapel is a faceted design with 12 white triangular panels symbolizing the purity of birth, while the secondary chapel is done similarly with 12 timber paneling to symbolize death on a wooden cross. 12 is a symbolic number for completion and triangle being the symbol of trinity.
