Detvianska, Bratislava
Fridrich Weinwurm, Ignác Vécsei
1936 – 1937

This tiny chapel makes reference to the Classical tradition solely through its organisation – in the form of a three-nave raised basilica. In all other respects, it is a work of highly simple Functionalist modernism. The roof with the cross at the top of the asymmetrically positioned tower lies atop simple rectangular columns, while the large windows illuminate an elegantly simple interior. The chapel is one of the very last works of these two architects.
