In the article titled “Taiwan Contemporary Church Tour” published by the Chinese Christian Tribune, the “Suang-Lien Elderly Center Presbyterian Chapel” designed by JJP was selected as the “Church Exclusively for Elderlies,” was also featured for its local landmark characteristics.
Inspired by the verse in the bible, “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes” (Isaiah. 54:2). The “Suang-Lien Presbyterian chapel” seeks to deliver the impression of inclusivity and compassion through its architectural language and program of long-term elderly care.
The project has went through three extensive construction phases and is currently in its fourth phase. The dome-shaped chapel is a reminder for residents and visitors alike that its doors are always opened to them.
