Námestie SNP 5, Trnava
Josef Marek
1923 – 1924

The site of the Lutheran church is at the Slovak National Uprising Square, in a direct contact with the historic town walls. Originally glazed arcade is located in front of the entrance. Pews in the church are arranged in an unorthodox way in a semi-circle. A cylindrical stairwell with a winding stair has been placed one on each side to access the choir loft. Altar is located at the centre of the interior layout, with a stepped up pulpit and an alcove with an organ overhead. Smaller niches on sides are housing the baptistery and the church choir. Northern facade of the church is topped with a quadrangle belfry, leaning against the town walls, it is partially protruding from the enclosed floor plan scheme. The massive volume of the tower with its low-pitched roof is dominant in a vista of the area, drawing attention to this otherwise relatively inconspicuous church.
