St. Bartholomew’s Church by Maxim Velcovsky




Working with designer Jakub Berdych under the Qubus Studio banner, the interior of St. Bartholomew’s Church features Verner Panton chairs customised with a punched crucifix, Persian rugs and chandeliers of rough-cut crystal.

I am completely mesmerized by these pictures and really want to visit this church and see it with my own eyes. An absolutely stunning combination of old and new: St. Bartholomew’s Church by Maxim Velcovsky

  1. Wow – that makes me want to hop on a plane tomorrow!

    There was just the little issue of where in the Czech Republic I’d be going! I’ve been able to determine that this is almost certainly kostela sv. Bartoloměje v Chodovicích, in the town of Chodovice – and I finally found Chodovice on a map.

  2. Yeah, that’s gorgeous and I tend to be very conservative about church design. I’ve often thought that there was unexplored potential in juxtaposing the cross symbol with pure white and blood red and this is really the first time I’ve seen something approaching my mind’s eye. There’s both a quietness and a majesty at work here. Mesmerizing is the right word.

  3. that is amazing! I’d love to travel there JUST to see this church. I wonder what the people of the parish think of it.

  4. That’s really gorgeous…great find!

  5. Beautiful and appropriate. Thank you for sharing this one.

  6. The seats look real comfortable. Having seats this good, would people be tempted to seal them? I want one for my living room. :P

  7. The sweep of the Panton chairs reminds me of the flowing white habits that nuns used to wear.

  8. are you guys sure this is st bartholomew’s in Chodovicích? i’ve just telephoned the qubus office in prague and they told me it was st bart’s in prague….

    which is in a convent and i’ve been told it’s closed to the public. (although i will continue to make enquiries.)

    sorry to burst the bubble! i was quite excited about it myself

  9. but then again, looking online, maybe i got the work experience person at qubus, because the church in chodovivich does seem to have those same chairs…

    sorry about that.. hmmm.

  10. Exotic Ho Chi Minh City, still referred to as ‘Saigon’ by many, has preserved its distinctly Asian feel and ancient culture, where monks pray in the numerous pagodas, temples and mosques. The capital Hanoi, is a pleasant and charming city of lakes, shaded boulevards and public parks. The old quarter, built around the Hoan Kiem Lake, is an architectural museum-piece characterised by its narrow streets. Ha Long Bay, with its 3000-plus islands rising from the clear, emerald waters, dotted with beaches and grottoes created by waves, is one of Vietnam’s natural marvels.

  11. wow, great article, thank you so much for sharing this great project. There’s something especially beautiful about combing the old and the new. Love this installation, makes me want to go to church just seeing how a space is transformed. Great work! I really enjoy reading through your articles and am looking forward to being a regular reader. Would love your input on my design blog, hope it’s okay that I put you in as link.

  17. I always emailed this webpage post page to all my friends, for
    the reason that if like to read it then my links will too.

  18. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
    updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and
    was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  19. I used to be suggested this website by means of my cousin.

    I’m now not sure whether or not this put up
    is written by way of him as no one else
    understand such special about my problem. You’re incredible!

    Thank you!

  20. The recent scandalous debacle at Harvard is an example.
    It is not a painful or irritating skin problem,
    but it can often appear so. Direct sunlight and tanning beds should be
    avoided for at least a full 24 hours.

  21. I constantly spent my half an hour to read this webpage’s articles daily along with a cup of coffee.
