Learn more about the design applied to the new Mary Queen of Apostles Church in Everest Academy Nuvali

The interior design for the new Mary Queen of Apostles Church in Everest Academy Nuvali will feature a minimalist and timeless design. Warm earth tones will be used to make the church look inviting and solemn for the clergy and the parishioners. The church will be able to accommodate more than 600 churchgoers. The main materials used for the interiors are wood and stone for the floors and accent walls. These signify the endurance and stability of the church and its followers. The stained glass windows; high, wooden ceiling; stone-clad altar wall; and giant wooden cross provide an ethereal ambiance. A wooden ceiling will be installed to provide better acoustics and visual warmth.

The client for this project wanted to achieve the effect of light pouring in from the windows, so large stained glass windows and stained glass doors are among the main features of the church. What is very special about the windows is that they give honor to Asian saints by featuring them in the designs. To provide more natural lighting and ventilation, the designers recommended accentuating the wooden, sloped ceiling. The interior design also allotted immense space for the presbyterium since this is where most of the activities during Mass will take place.
