The design, by Arch. Peja, preserves the rural stylistic features of the existing buildings while being absolutely innovative in the new worship hall: a building designed as a lantern on the water. Consolidation of listed buildings dating back to 1580 and creation of a new 750-seat hall intended for holding religious audiences. The latter was redesigned with a different structural scheme on inverted foundation beams and prefabricated structures above ground. Singular metalwork completes the design and is complemented by a golden metal cladding.
