Churches, in addition to the role they play for the society and religion, are slowly becoming an integral part of contemporary architecture. The world is walking away from the old concept of monumental, overwhelming buildings toward lighter constructions that would fit visual style of big cities. The RW Concrete Church by NAMELESS Architecture is a great example how sacral architecture can be turned into a beautiful and essential element of the landscape.
The RW Concrete Church is made of concrete, which gives it a plain and minimal look. Like many modern residences, private houses, and art galleries, it has a distinctive and irregular shape that brings a stack of cubes to mind. There are numerous glass panes that allow for proper ventilation and let the sun penetrate the upper floor. The ground floor, on the other hand, is sunk in the dark and extremely spacious.
The space, however empty it may seem, highlights the character of the building and leaves plenty of room for worship attendants as well as their thoughts and prayers. Its simplicity calls for reflection and emanates both physical and spirtual peace.
