Pfarre Korneuburg

The current vestry together with the new building body of the priest and ministrants vestry and the spatial recognisable extension of the parish hall create an ensemble that binds the newly made parish place.This place is versatile usable and it is separated from the public space through a connecting bridge. The historic entrance receives back in this way its meaning of a main entrance. The historic volume remains unchanged through moving away of the new vestry. The architectonic meaningfull exterior of the church remains unaffected. A "glas joint" gently links the connecting bridge with the church and uses in this way the current historical opening without harming its borderings. Due to the bridge transparency - especially in the adjacent area of the church - the historic appearance remains as much as possible unchanged.


Transparent fluent transitions create a space continuum from the parish hall through the parish plazza to the adjoining public space. Routes and ramps integrate the current parish garden.
