Church hall

BDE Architekten GmbH as Architects

The new church hall accommodates a café, classrooms, a hall and rectory offices under a single roof close to the church. The specific architecture with a contorted gable roof and a facade of vertical wooden slats integrates the building into the historical village centre and is nevertheless contemporary.


The facade is opened to different degrees depending on the function and alignment.


The floor space of the three-storey building grows with each floor, adding elegance to the volume. The interior is characterised by the open staircase in glazed concrete that reaches up to the roof, as well as the maple louver board ceilings. Ceiling lights create appropriate illumination, dispersing it through the wooden slats and combining with Perspex cylinders in the staircase, which are a special reference to the history of the building and the community: They are printed with a flower ornament from the Baroque frescoes of the old church choir.
