Spirit of Jesus Church, Naha 2005
Design : Toshiharu Fukumura + team DREAM
This newly built church is perched on a plateau elevated above the rest of the City of Naha. Inside the round, vaulted-ceiling sanctuary, a large ring suspended from the ceiling seems to float above the pews. Ambient light is a combination of ring uplights, illuminating the ceiling and structure members, and ring downlights. The ring uplights on the all-white ceiling fill this small church with a sense of poise and loftiness.
