  • I definitely loved the architecture that this has, in addition to the route that is made to be able to reach this beautiful chapel, watching a sunset here is very inspiring, the only bad thing are the annoying mosquitoes.

  • It's very intersting urban chapel! I recomend this places for watching the sunset
  • The Chapel, which was projected in 2011, was preceded By discussions by the religious Commission about which Esprit should emanate from this House. Last But not least, it was agreed on two conflicting Needs, which, as natural Antagonists, placed high Demands on the Architects. It should be a Wedding Chapel in such a way that the Newlyweds may forever remember their special Day, an Experience of spiritual Content. On The other hand, it should be a ceremonial Place where People who mourn a Deceased experience comfort and Connection. These Assumptions were sought by the Architects of The BKNR office WITH Form and Material to implement, expressing the Duality of Life events. Architecturally, Questions arose such as Glass versus Concrete, transparency vs. Solidarity, ethereal vs. heavy, classic Proportions vs. apparent chaos, vulnerable vs. indestructible, transient vs. permanent. The Instructions of the Clients were very simple, but cryptically oriented towards unprofessional Fixed points: First, the Chapel was to take advantage of the spectacular View. Furthermore, the Ray of sunshine should fall exactly behind the Altar Cross, which is only possible twice a Year at Equinox. Another Aspect was the Surroundings around the Chapel, so that in metaphorical Language the Mausoleum in perfect Utopia Harmonizes with the heavenly cycle of continuous Renewal. The immediate Surroundings, large Trees and lush Vegetation as well as a Megalith That blocked the view of the Sunset proved To be problematic. In order to minimise the intervention in the beautiful Nature, the Chapel was designed in such a way that it rests like a huge Rock with the Top in a Rock Roller environment. In the upper Part are vertical Rods that shape their Appearance. On one narrow Side is a Latin Cross. Seen From below, the Chapel appears dormant on a high Rock Roller Environment and magically unfelt depending on the Lighting Conditions. Inside, the Space against the outside is interrupted only by the Rods, which results in an Attachment to Nature. It is a Chapel that has been fully fit and proper in its Surroundings. People with spiritual Needs may feel addressed here, because the Mood suggests a magical Closeness. The Light and the Shadows give Reflexes that arouse corresponding Feelings.
