The original building is an example of early 20th century neo Romanesque, which has seen decoration and redecoration.

The church has been refurbished and redeveloped  significantly. 

The most striking elements introduce light into the space by stripping the roof timbers and treating them with a white oil, and creating a unified pale colour scheme. The limestone columns and timber floors have also been stripped and sealed. Everywhere, the desire for honesty is present. Although, for example, the heating infrastructure is concealed in the walls using pioneering technology, this is visibly expressed by allowing copper piping to snake around the timber ribs at the clerestory level. The overall aim is to create a rationalised, readable space that generates a sense of unmediated spirituality.
