Estonian Methodist Church in Tallinn, Estonia by AB Künnapu & Padrik

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Article source: AB Künnapu & Padrik

The two-storey building is sculptural, slightly resembling a ship, with a subtle scale. There is a small piazza and an awning in front of the entrance. The crystal-shaped church hall seats 720, and a slender wedge-like spire emerges from it. The curved “tail” contains a common room, theological seminary classes, library, students´ sleeping quarters, offices etc. It is a powerful solution to the rear part of the building.

Unquera Parish Center – Church of the Holy Martyrs in Cantabria, Spain by Fernandez-Abascal y Muruzabal + Ortiz y Barrientos

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Article source: Fernandez-Abascal y Muruzabal + Ortiz y Barrientos

The center, located in the extension of Unquera, is aligned to a road in the base of the mountain which characterizes and darkens the plot. We projected and elementary volume slightly elevated from the land, like a palafito. Its abstraction and scale facilitate its implantation as primary element in the heterogenous and little qualified urban fabric. Its distance against the ground level avoids the damages caused by the swellings of the Deva river.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Renovation in Washington by atelierjones

Saturday, April 20th, 2013

Article source:  atelierjones

The project is a renovation of and design of a new entry addition to an iconic mid-century Northwest Modernist church, designed by Steinhart/Theriault in 1962. The worn 50 year old structure required a new liturgical space for gatherings around a new full-immersion baptismal artist-designed font, as well as accessibility, structural and energy upgrades. Careful choices about stripping away the years of accumulated renovations that had marred the powerful space were required.

Sagrada Família in Catalonia, Spain by Antoni Gaudi

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Article source: Wikipedia

The Basilica of the Sagrada Família was the inspiration of a Catalan bookseller, Josep Maria Bocabella, founder of Asociación Espiritual de Devotos de San José (Spiritual Association of Devotees of St. Joseph). After a visit to the Vatican in 1872, Bocabella returned from Italy with the intention of building a church inspired by that at Loreto. The crypt of the church, funded by donations, was begun 19 March 1882, on the festival of St. Joseph, to the design of the architect Francisco de Paula del Villar, whose plan was for a Gothic revival church of a standard form. Antoni Gaudí began work on the project in 1883. On 18 March 1883 Villar retired from the project, and Gaudí assumed responsibility for its design, which he changed radically.

Southland Christian Church in Lexington, Kentucky by EOP Architects

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Article source: EOP Architects

A unique client’s vision and openness to abstract symbolism provided EOP Architects the opportunity to transform a long vacant and neglected retail mall into an energized campus with a newfound purpose. Southland Christian Church in Lexington, Kentucky, requested a contemporary, iconic design that would be welcoming, inspirational and transformational but devoid of any traditional references to Christianity: there are no conventional steeples, crosses, or stained glass windows. However, the design response includes a number of abstract interpretations with references to these elements.

St Alfred’s Church in Victoria, Australia by Studio B Architects

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

Article source: Studio B Architects

Concepts of sustainable design are often given media attention though startling innovations and avant-garde design. However, it is those projects that at first not recognized, but though the ’test of time’ prove themselves to be innovative and appealing to work and visit are worthy of discussion.

The St Alfred’s Church complex is one such project. Located in the leafy Melbourne suburb of North Blackburn the building is a composite of tested ideas combined about welcoming planning and design. This church and educational building is an expansion of an earlier small building that had occupied the site for the past forty-five years.
