St Hilaire Church in Melle by Mathieu Lehanneur in interior design  Category

Mathieu Lehanneur has converted the choir at St Hilaire church in Melle in the Deux-Sèvres department in France, creating a topographic, geological feeling. To reinforce that the church was built there, the Romanesque building has been infused with a mineral feeling and look with white marble.

What I like best about this design is that it feels like it grew organically from the floor, spilling over and forming around the church’s stone columns, like a natural landscape.
