Urban Bell Tower

First Prize at the Competition in Hanau-Grossauheim

Turkali Architects put an end to the shortcomings of heterogeneous urban planning and missing open space through designing a tower in front of the church.
Colonnades mark the passage to the house of God and create a powerful lobby, which invites the parish to use it for all kinds of activities.
Upwards the bell tower, the facade includes an increasing number of narrow openings, which dissolve the heavy masses of the shaft towards the sky and create a large cross as the symbol of faith, which is recognizable for miles around.
