Lutheran Church, Tornaľa
Námestie SNP 8, Tornaľa
Fairly small building of the Lutheran church stands at the corner of a square with a park. It is based on an asymmetrical composition of two primary forms: an elevated prism-shaped tower and a low rectangular volume of the main hall. The tower with its vertical window openings and a flat roof is the dominant feature of the church. The main entrance is located at the corner, sheltered by a cantilevered mass of the choir which is supported with a corner pillar. The interior has a concrete beam ceiling, high windows and an elongated oval altar area. In the context of L. Oelschlaeger’s work, the church represents an unusually moderate functionalist piece.
