Oh Come, All Ye Faithful

December 25, 2021

If more churches looked like this there would be an end to the myriad excuses used to get out of attending midnight mass on Christmas Eve. The genius behind this renovation is British designer John Pawson. His collaboration with architect Jan Hobel, through their careful and deliberate refining and editing, has created in this 1,000 year old church near simplequietmodern perfection. You can almost hear the angels voices.

Of all the holiday posts of the last ten years, this was my favorite. I decided to repost it now as I was reminded of how healing a space could be in it’s stunning simplicity. In yet another year of Covid, however you spend the day, be healthy… be careful. Merry Christmas.
