Let There Be Light

Riepl Riepl Architekten
Steyr, Austria

Peter and Gabriele Riepl do not see their role as one of creation, but rather, one of rebirth: the reinvention and reconditioning of existing spaces rather than the invention of new ones. It is fitting, then, that their latest masterpiece takes the form of a church, a long-used site of worship, albeit one that does not conform to any of the entrenched traditions of ecclesiastical structures.
