In respect for the historical building and with consideration towards current users, the old church was reinterpreted by bringing together past elements and present aspects. As one of the core components, a large-scale version of a classic renaissance tile was specifically designed and composed in various patterns. Furthermore, the work consists of the development of a new colour palette and rearrangement of the historical interior, along with a geometric glass mosaic in the tower window. By merging various materials and their tactility, it is the intention that the space is able to instil contemplation and presence in a contemporary context.
