From a distance it seems that the copper-plated church with its set back plinth is floating on the lake. Via a short bridge one reaches the entrance of church. The outer oval course goes back inside and a large arched corridor leads the visitor automatically to the spacious church hall. Inside the white curved wall leads our gaze to the liturgical centre with a traditional placing. Altar and Ambo (lectern) together on a raised sanctuary. The only window in the church hall is found above the sanctuary in the shape of a cross. On sunny days the sunlight shimmers through the cross, apart from that also sunlight is mirrored by the pond water through the glass plinth, providing a animated spectacle at the inward sloping curved wall. Therefore, connecting this confined space to the outside. A metaphor for the parish itself that wants to carry out their openness.
