Katholic Church Guthirt

nachtaktiv as Architects

With the new lighting concept, an atmosphere has been created that accentuates the architecture and radiates a pleasant warmth and feeling of security. The light can create a particularly reflective atmosphere, that allows to withdraw from the loud external world.


On the one hand, the church was brought closer to the original conditions - especially in terms of colors and surfaces. On the other hand, a reorientation allows a versatile use of the church space. The light supports these changes. The architecture in the Baroque architectural style is highlighted and completed with new accents.


The crypt was redesigned by Georg Fontana. The light supports the beautiful details. In particular, the golden mosaic cross comes into its own.
