Work completes on Christ Methodist Church designed by K2LD and Web Structures
A consortium including architects K2LD and structural and design engineers Web Structures has completed a S$20m place of worship in Singapore. The design was selected through a competition in 2009 and has resulted in a sleek four-storey facility on East Coast Road.
Alongside a generous worship space, the facility includes a multi-purpose hall, basement car parking, a baptism pool, classrooms, a band room, and a recording and dance studio. There is also a pair of green walls located either side of the main church wall.
Dr Hossein Rezai, group director of Web Structures, said: “Christ Methodist Church is a truly stunning building and is already a local landmark. The architects have not only designed a striking place of worship, the facilities the new building offers are playing an important role in the local community. We worked closely with the architecture team to ensure their vision could become reality.”
The concept for the project was altered during construction, after it was decided to incorporate an additional level in 2013. Following a full investigation into feasibility, the expanded construction was completed earlier this year.
Dr Rezai added: “The design processes we have developed over the years leads to structural systems that are tailor-made for each and every project and are totally cost-efficient. That was very much the approach we took with this project.”
