Changtteul Church, is an old place of worship in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea, that gets its name from the term “changtteul”, meaning “a frame containing a window”, in Korean. As its name suggests, the building’s character lies in its series of windows, giving the visitors both outside and inside a unique experience of light and scenery.

Designers Hanyoung Jang and Hanjin Jang of studio minorormajor utilized the windows of Changtteul as a metaphorical motif for their design concept: the first being the ‘window between man and God’, and the second being ‘the window between man and nature’, immersing the abandoned religious facility with dramatic experiences.
