in developing the church’s interior, elisa valero worked with natural radiance to symbolically address the theme of the holy trinity. three overhead openings welcome light inside the monolithic edifice: a hidden skylight facing east, which indirectly illuminates the altar; another that creates the from of a cross during sunset; and a third to the south, which brings light into the central nave.
the church’s restrained appearance was further influenced by the site’s specific conditions, which dictated that the building (apart from its bell tower) must not exceed a total height of eight meters. the vertical structure is made of double-sided reinforced concrete walls, while the foundations and slabs use ‘elesdopa’ — a double-wall system that offers a high level of thermal insulation. the choice of concrete also has a symbolic value, with the exposed structure seeking to convey a sense of sincerity and sobriety.
