Top: Church of St. Mary’s of The Angels in Singapore; Centre and Below: St. Bartholomew’s Church in Prague, Czech Republic.
As probably a few of you will be heading to a church nearby to celebrate the midnight Christmas Mass, these are two churches that I would most love to be at tonight. They are not really new but they are so cool.
The St. Bartholomew Church designed by Maxim Velcovsky in Prague is breathtakingly beautiful. While the façade and rawness of the basic structure have been preserved in the centuries old building, the interiors have been spruced up with glitzy chandeliers, Persian carpets and Vitra’s Panton chairs, customised with a punched-in crucifix. It’s totally awe-inspiring! The other church, the Church of St. Mary’s of The Angels in Singapore designed by WOHA architect firm, personifies clean design and minimalism with simple wooden furniture. Check out the air-borne statue of Christ hung with the help of high-tension steel wires. Who said design and religion don’t go together?
