The church is designed as a symbolic distinct building, expressing continuity in development of sacral architecture using modern means. The pure proportions of the church, rising from a cross floor plan with a slender bell tower, are based on an astute composition of cubic shapes refined by the apse-like end of the main nave and the golden roof ring illumination, creating a structure of modest monumentality. The main entrance is accentuated by a portal and staircase.
The symbolic glass ring in a levitating roof provides the church with extraordinary illumination, bringing light (factual & meaningful) to the presbytery. The ring acts as a reminder of the use of naves throughout Christianity, and represents the Crown of Thorns, the open gate to Heaven and to Heavenly Jerusalem.
A community centre with social rooms, a library and a hall are located under the nave, with a cafe in the courtyard. Making this a meeting place not only for parishioners, but for all local inhabitants.
Built up area:

The church is a contemporary building with number of technically unique elements.
A translucent ring, with a diameter of 8 m, created from an exquisite stainless steel structure with a cross-guided suspension truss.
Of interest in the interior, is a chapel in the shape of an open perforated cylinder, made of aluminium sheet, and also an extraordinary 5.75 m high glass cross, the fabrication of which pushed the boundaries of current glass lamination technology.
The unconventional design of the all-glass entrance doors to the church, with thermal insulation and emergency exits, and the frameless sash window under the ceiling of the nave, are designed to cope with dilatation movements and creep from reinforced concrete structures.
