© Shai Gil PhotographyThe new  Chinese Baptist Church, designed by Teeple Architects, has been conceived as a direct reflection of the liturgical vision of its Baptist congregation. This liturgical vision has a dual focus – fellowship, which the church characterizes as horizontal relationships between people, and spirituality, which is seen as a vertical relationship between people and God.

The church serves both as a significant place of worship with a sanctuary for 1,600 and as a focal point of activity for the Chinese community in , offering recreation (a large gymnasium) banquet facilities, and meeting places.

It is the focal point of a 200-seat chapel and a point of reference as one moves through the public circulation spaces of the church.

Storm water is processed through a sequence of swales that are planted with specific plant materials and special soils. The project also achieved an extremely high level of energy efficiency at a very low cost, through a carefully designed building envelope and heat recovery systems.
