A new Orthodox church design

New Orthodox church architecture should relate to its cultural setting. The Greek Orthodox Church of the Holy Fathers in Shrewsbury, England, asked me to make preliminary designs for a new church and community hall that they hope to build.  We wanted a design that drew on the rich Anglo-Saxon and Romanesque heritage  of Great Britain as well as the Byzantine architectural tradition. The design you see below is what I came up with. Design and painting by Aidan Hart.
