The quadrangle of the walled church garden was located in the village centre. The new buildings for the vicarage and community centre accentuate the themes of centrepiece and walls in various ways. The adoption of historical “irregularities” enables the simple, stereometric buildings to be incorporated seamlessly into the scattered village landscape.

The new buildings and the historic church wall form a courtyard that is open to the street and yet sheltered, for various community activities. The hall “in the wall” opens up the view to the church.

The vicarage on the southern side benefits from the quality of life offered by the peaceful walled orchard. Public and private areas of the vicarage are distributed between two buildings. The private house was positioned parallel to the church wall on Crumbacher Strasse, while the meeting room and archive follow the contours of the existing and extended wall along a byroad.
