Reformed Church and Community Building of Albertfalva

Zoltán Berzsák, Csaba Mravik, Katalin Konyha



This church was designed to replace the prayer house that had been converted from a garage.
On the corner lot, the elliptical building is elevated from the street level with an entrance from the public square cut out of the ellipse, facing the busier road. The hard, protective (egg) shell that borders the building is counterpointed by a soft, airy, inviting wooden structure and open-fronted lamellar façade that forms the church space and connects it to the congregation building.

Inside, the structure recalls the old coffered-ceiling churches. The space is designed with natural
lighting changes with the sun, the light creates a special atmosphere in the space, evoking the biblical
"tabernacle" atmosphere.
