Architecture of this church is monumental - by its scale, height and by its architectural concept.

Opulent ornamentation lead us to design presbytery as an additional part of the decoration. The shape is inspired by golden falling ribbon frozen in time and it reflects uniqueness of a moment. The edge of presbytery is moved to be closer to the audience.
