Parisian architect and designer Mathieu Lehanneur has completed the conversion of the choir at St Hilaire Church in the city of Melle located in Poitou-Charentes region in western France. The organic, layered white marble design reminiscent of a stratigraphic form takes its cue from the sedimentary formation and references the church’s location on the slope of the Beronne valley.

The flowing curvilinear podium encompasses a concave baptistery while the liturgical furniture; the altar and pulpit, are made from an amber-coloured alabaster, which resembles the colour of the stone walls of this Romanesque church.
