The design challenge of the Multi faith Centre was to create a uniquely versatile venue for the practice and discussion of religion and spirituality in which students and leaders of all faiths feel equally welcome and equally valued.
Avoiding icons and symbolism, ‘light’ (spiritual and metaphysical) emerged as a common theme to all faiths and became the central feature of the main facility hall. A dramatic ceiling and front wall of back lit translucent white Onyx panels illuminates the space. The onyx was panelized by using sacred numerology and geometries to create a ceiling mosaic that subtly references the religious structure of all faiths.
