Baptist Church, Public Spaces-Religious Buildings

The Baptist Church is located in Sector 44. This church has been designed to express its stark identity with respect to adjacent 'box-type architecture'. The building has been designed within a fixed volume of 11.3m x 32m x 11m and several other strict building bye-laws.

Since non-functional symbolism has not much relevance in modern religious architecture, so this church has been designed to cater to bare functional needs.

The building admits light and ventilation through openings which are either below or above normal eye level so that activities outside do not distract the worshippers. Big glazings with blue coloured glass are provided on both sides of sanctuary through which natural sunlight falls inside and creates an aura of divine effulgence. Minimum use of glass, provision of cavity walls and white-painted barrel-vaulted roof which reflect the sunrays contribute effectively in maintaining cool and comfortable interiors in summers. External surfaces of the building are finished with grit in white and brown horizontal bands.

The building is selected by Tata Energy Research Institute, New Delhi as one of the 45 energy-efficient buildings in India.
