Built in the northern city of the island of Tenerife, the Holy Redeemer Church is a great concrete piece that split and cut into four volumes, the zenith light gives a mystic dimension to each room.

A big entrance ramp surrounds and swings around the building in order to give access to the square and the first floor of the church.

It is one of Menis Studio most emblematic works, the rational and symbolic use of the light give birth to a religious temple of deep theological roots.

Inspiration from architect:

The fundamental idea of the project is to design a visual reference within the urban landscape. Large independent rocks (big concrete volumes), characterize the whole project. The spaces between these rocks turn into “patios” with natural light and ventilation.
