Compass Church Concept Design

Project Details


Naperville, IL

Type: Church

Size: TBD

Site: Suburban

Project Description

Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  Matthew 5:15

The Compass Church concept was inspired from the verse Matthew 5:15. The design incorporates a glass center atrium that at night dynamically spreads light out through the exterior envelope.

The interior circulation and exterior cladding separate to reveal the interior glow.
