A new church in the rural township of eSikhawini, South Africa was the first international commission for JTAI. The design used a passive approach to cool the building during the hot, humid summer months. Multiple pairs of doors lined each side of the sanctuary to allow prevailing winds to pass through the building. Continuous louvers placed along the length of roof assisted by fans emitted the rising warm air.
