Private Chapel

15 square meters in the rough surface of a concrete box form the essence of this chapel, the cruciform skylight adding an unexpected plus. Raised slightly of the sloping ground on a single, round column this, somehow, completes the Cartesian geometric requirements. Entrance to the space is gained through an almost invisible door in the steel strip which runs down the middle of the cube.

This significantly reduces the clutter that such an event might cause. The reduced frame of the bell tower completes the religious paraphernalia.
