The IBCV required a new facility accommodating main meditation hall, administrative and class room spaces and a ground level café and bookshop. The simple closed form of the building provides for an axial entry point between two robust façade piers, leading to a protected and tranquil interior subtly lit by a light court with green wall to the western boundary, also shaded by adjustable louvres.
The Hall is lit from above, maintaining a visual connection to the sky while providing an appropriate focus on the main altar area.
