Church of the Transfiguration



A sanctuary set within modern architecture

The Project


The accentuation of the building form, sandstone lookalike finishes, imposing stained glass façade, use of natural light and motifs and the arrival experience via the grand staircase up to the Main Sanctuary, aim to emulate the journey up Mount Tabor and the biblical scene.

The Challenge


To overcome spatial constraints and meet the regulatory requirements on minimum carpark provision, RSP designed spaces within the church which facilitated dual and flexible use. The Main Sanctuary was carefully planned and designed to accentuate the sacredness of the space within a modern architecture.
