In a newly renovated factory building, a small area was set aside for the Sihlcity Church as a contact point for people of any and all religious backgrounds. The space is representative of an older age, and modern technology has been well-hidden in the furniture fixtures. The materials, crude steel and cast iron flooring, capture the industrial character of the building while simultaneously radiating a meditative tranquility.
