In 2014 the St. Martha Church (1385) in Nuremberg burned down. In the course of the reconstruction, the old outer contour was retained, while the newly shaped interior is characterized by a contemporary wooden ceiling structure. As the guiding principle of the lighting concept, the choice fell on evenly distributed architectural lighting without accentuating special areas, staging the interior as an all-luminous cubature - like a vessel.
The lights were positioned so that they are barelyperceptible to the visitor. In this way, the atmospheric room light, as the main actor, can fully unfold its effect. Candela's scope of planning included the lighting concept and the construction-related design.After almost four and a half years of construction, the St. Martha Church was officially reopened on November 10, 2018.
