The mountain is the beginning of countless, antique and middle-age towns. With silence and sacrifice of this place, people can feel safety and cosiness. Also everyone can enjoy the magnificent and calm view of the top of the mountain. The huge window in the solid block focuses attention to the one of the most majestic views of the site. The silhouette of the window and form of the inner space is formed by an average outline of a typical dwelling of Rwanda. The cross is situated out of the building. It is the final point of the route through two main spaces of the church. The first one is opened and transparent. It is surrounded by exposed columns. The second space is directly opposite, closed and massive. It accommodates altar nave, presbytery. Different programs and volumes of those spaces allow to organize the various kind of events.
