Project on the map (green arrow)
The hall of iron-reinforced concrete starts with arched buttresses at ground level. Four corners of the hexagonal choir tower compose the end of the choir. The highest elevation of the church is the tower erected over the festively decorated choir.
To create a harmonious room, the architect moved the entrances to the eastern side of the building.
The material used, iron-forced concrete and a brick facade, caused a controversy over “worthy” and “unworthy” materials in church building.
