The church of St Moritz has been through many changes since its foundation nearly
a thousand years ago. Devastating fires, changes in liturgical practice, aesthetic evolution and wartime bombing have each left their mark on the fabric of the building. The purpose of this latest intervention has been to retune the existing architecture, from aesthetic, functional and liturgical perspectives, with considerations of
sacred atmosphere always at the heart of the project. The work has involved the meticulous paring away of selected elements of the church’s complex fabric and the relocation of certain artefacts,

Observed from the pine-fringed bay, Armonia is designed to read as a graphically simple composition of slender white horizontal lines, framing full-height glass and bronze finished elements that quietly animate the elevations with rhythm and pattern. The goal of the design was to create a series of apartments where the sense of place is strong and expressed in a series of intimate relationships with the sea, the mountains, the surrounding gardens and the brilliance of the Aegean light.
