Franziskus Church Centre by Marques AG

In the centre of the building designed by Marques AG, there is a dominant shape, a shape from which it receives its role as the public and sacred building of the district.

Its heights are progressive: they range from an enclosed shape in the west, which borders on the neighbouring family homes, to a ten metre high finish toward the east, which contains the church’s interior. The new church centre conveys unity in a complex and varied spatial area: church, administration and residence, as well as a youth centre.

Each unit has been given its own, defined, outer space in the form of internal courtyards, which are designed differently according to their intended use.  In the sacred church interior various grades of granular plaster and different shades of white reflect the specially-introduced light and create a spiritual atmosphere.
