The church holds 500 people in a single body. The first project outline is engraved on the door and portrays the mountain as a place of the manifestation of God. The inside of the church alludes to the mountains, present in the Bible as meeting places with the divine.

The altar, the baptismal font, and the cross of Christ, were made by the sculptor Paulo Neves, who carved fingerprints in the pieces, giving a mystical identity to the space.

Design philosophy:

The project always takes into account the terrain where it operates, the program, the client, and the feelings we want to create to whom utilizes it.

The inspirations come to us by the terrain where the project will happen, the observation of what surrounds us, sometimes the conditions of the urban plan and when there are, the pre-existences.

All projects are important because they have different scales, which gives us a extensive knowledge and experience.
