The new church in the centre of Hainburg was constructed on a historic church site. The new building has a central space (nave) lit by three large circular skylights, a community hall, and various auxiliary rooms. The voluminous steel roof structure and tall bell tower form the church’s landmark.
The roof structure with three large skylights is formed from a substructure rigidly connected to the reinforced concrete walls of the worship space via steel components. The substructure is formed by a girder grid of steel sections, a primary and secondary frame structure supporting the three-dimensional curved steel shell. The free-standing bell tower has been designed as a steel structure rising to 20 m. A load-bearing shell made of steel plates braced by horizontal ribs ensures the transfer of the occurring forces.
