The building is an early example of a church built to a fan-shaped plan. The large plot on a bend in the road is exploited to the full with the broad entrance front, substantially glazed and extended to the side with an open cloister and a soaring campanile. The interior is flooded with light, with a further circular skylight above the altar. The Stations of the Cross are arranged in a carved stone frieze on the 2 side walls.
