Elsa Urquijo Architects have completed a church in Spain for the charity Padre Rubinos, where the group will also have office space. The design is compact yet beautiful at the same time, with a white-washed shade throughout.

One of the main goals of the space was to have everything exude quite a calm nature, and to do this the architects chose not to overly decorate. Instead they kept everything simple, using a minimalist aesthetic throughout. This helps people so that when they visit they can concentrate more on the act of prayer and worship rather than be distracted by any ornate details.

Elsa Urquijo Architects managed to complete this church with a sense of elegance and class.
