Martin Luther Church - Hainburg, Austria

In less than a year a protestant church together with a sanctuary, a church hall and supplementary spaces was built in the centre of the Austrian town Hainburg.

The shape of the building is derived from that of a huge “table”, with its entire roof construction resting on the legs of the “table”-four steel columns. Another key element is the ceiling of the prayer room: its design language has been developed from the shape of the curved roof of a neighboring Romanesque ossuary-the geometry of this centuries-old building is translated into a form, in line with the times, via today’s digital instruments. The light comes from above: three large winding openings in the roof guide it into the interior.
