The church was situated in a residential neighbourhood of São Paulo. The aim of the church was to provide a confined space without external interface, while simultaneously being a public space which can be seen as a continuation of the street. Natural light brought in from openings above wash the side walls while expressing the concrete structure and materiality. From the public space the building is entered through a ramped and stepped access in a double/triple height space. The use of ramps creates a continuity from the outside space and the glass and stained glass draws in natural light and focuses attention to the internal concrete materiality.
