Holy Cross Church

Current Situation
FOMA

The church with the adjoining parish offices was erected on a rectangular plot. The main façade was originally dominated by the high-pitched pediment constructed of industrial glass on metal frames. The walls were erected using concrete slabs left raw, without insulation or plasterwork. The interior was covered by a lightweight metal spatial grid structure, on which the architect hanged his own angel sculptures. The original furniture was also designed by Szabó.

In 2001 architect Péter Pottyondy radically redisegned and reconstructed the church, covering the walls with red brick and changing the industrial glass to a curtain wall. Some elements of the interior, such as the hanging angel sculptures, were also removed and are currently stored in the Christian Museum in Esztergom.
