‘In the beginning’ – the phrase is inscribed in six languages over the main entrance.

“eml were invariably competent, attentive, and when circumstances were difficult – flexible. …eml produced a building that to this day still surprises us with its loveliness. …Throughout the long and often difficult construction process, eml architects always remained professional, patient and good-humoured. For us, their role as architects was a blessing.”

The Dominican Order.
