The architectural project was designed as a kind of flower of light composed by nine translucent petals. The lighting design project had to fulfill two main goals: create an exterior scheme that show the transparency of the materials and reveal the temple as a light emitting element and create interior lighting schemes which generate a warm, monastic and intimate ambient favorable to meditation and prayer. The main interior lighting effect is indirect and executed from the back of the benches from the mezzanine which produce as well a grazing effect on the marble petals and highlight their complex shape.
