Parish House Maria Feicht

The plot is characterised by a gothic church, which was built at the beginning of the 16th century. The new parish building is designed as a narrow, elongated structure with a steep gable roof. The form and materiality of the building refers to the rural surroundings. Due to the location of the parish house, a corresponding outdoor space is created in interaction with the existing cemetery wall. The square forms the new centre of the village and serves as a meeting point for the residents of Maria Feicht. The building is designed as a timber construction: all construction parts, such as the floor, walls and roof slopes are made of wood.

What makes this project one-of-a-kind?
The integration of the new building into the existing village structure and the spatial relationship to the gothic church. The creation of a new village centre.
