The project is to design 2 floors of space for Jesus Is Lord Church with a low budget. One entire floor is taken up by the main chapel and the other floor is for the church office, classrooms and a smaller chapel.

Based upon the name of the church, Jesus Is Lord over the life and death. The design is inspired by the birth and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He was born in a manger in a stone feeding trough for animals based on certain interpretations. When He died, He was put inside a stone tomb or cave which is somewhat similar to the feeding trough where He was born. Our design of the backdrop of the main chapel is a faceted design with 12 triangular panels painted in white in symbolized the purity of birth, where as the backdrop of the secondary chapel is done similarly but with timber paneling to symbolize His death on a wooden cross, also consisting of 12 triangles. 12 is a symbolic number for completion and triangle being the symbol of trinity.
