The colour was printed onto the inside surface of an insulating glass panel fitted in front of the façade by means of the OKACOLOR process developed by insulating glass specialist OKALUX of Marktheidenfeld. A screen-printing process was used to print vertical stripes onto the other side of the glass panel. The effect produced by these stripes is such that the colour is hardly visible from the outside during the daytime, but glows gently through the stripes during the hours of darkness when the body of the church is illuminated. Although the architecture of the church hall picks up the traditional 'stained glass' church window theme with this concept, the interpretation is completely new and adopts modern industrial techniques. This environment not only offers church-goers the sheltered space needed for meditation; secular aspects also pervade the hall as a result of the cheerful interchange of light and colour with the accompanying gentle lighting mood and a link is established to the world outside.
