The Shrine of Jesus is part of the master-planned community of the SM Central Business Park. This structure represents the culmination of an urban planning initiative to integrate places to live, work, play, and worship within a single walkable community. The church is well-oriented to the wind path, allowing cross-ventilation inside. Romanesque-inspired, the Shrine of Jesus stands as a dramatic structure on a seaside area in Metro Manila. The Shrine has a seating capacity of 580 persons, and has a floor area of about 1,400 square meters standing on a 2,900-square meter lot of the reclaimed part of Manila Bay. This structure with perfect symmetry is an embodiment and celebration of Filipino religiosity. The design services for the Shrine of Jesus is a donation of Palafox Associates to the Catholic Church.
