Parish Complex of St Peter and St Paul
Place of worship
Works duration
2012 - 2014
Diocese of Porto - Santa Rufina
Approximately 24 months
The new parish complex in Olgiata is divided into three separate buildings: the church, capable of accommodating a congregation of 500 people, complete with a sacristy and weekday chapel; the rectory; and the area set aside as parish offices with fourteen classrooms and a parish hall.
The structure is dominated by the 23 m brick bell tower and the travertine-covered church façade.
Special features include cut-out openings, which are plentiful on the main façade and constructed with vertical slits on the side elevations, creating a distinctive internal diffusion of the light.
