The Building

 

The Swiss Church Building in Covent Garden, over 150 years old, underwent a major renovation and transformation in the past few years. The project, designed by Christ & Gantenbein, aims at both restoring and enhancing the building in terms of attractiveness and functionality. The new building is versatile and extends far beyond the traditional use of a church.

It is not often that you have the opportunity to work in a space as beautiful and unique as the Swiss Church. I was immediately struck by its whiteness and simplicity. The architecture is very present, but also neutral and sparse. It can seem vast with its high ceilings and echoing acoustics, while also being extremely intimate and tangible. I’ve never been to a church like it.
