Catholic Church in Poland
MetadataShow full item record
A church is a house of God where everybody is welcome. The space separates sacred from the profane and strengthens people in faith. The project is a catholic church combined with a clergy house. It is located in a flat area, near nature reserve. The church consists of nave, leading along the axis with a slight slope to the altar. The placement of the altar is the intersection of the central space and two chapels that creates a transept. The spaces cause focus while the light coming through gaps under the ceiling, makes a majestic impression. The clergy house fulfills the need of office and dwelling. The atrium in the end of the structure provides light to the rooms. Part of the whole structure is under the ground. This immersion enhances the meaning of the purification – catharsis.
