|Ofis Arhitekti - Farewell Chapel in Slovenia|
|Wednesday, 17 June 2009 07:30|
There is certain consistency about Ofis Arhitekti. We always get a pleasant surprise when we receive a new project from them. Although the building typology differs from one project to another, there is always a healthy dose of creativity and novelty that gets injected into each project.
The site plot is next to the existing graveyard. The architecture of the Chapel is cut into the rising landscape.
The shape is following the lines of the landscape trajectories around the graveyard.
Three curved walls are embracing and dividing the programs.
External curve is dividing the surrounding hill from Chapel plateau and also reinstates main supporting wall.
A roof window in the form of a laying cross is implemented on the rooftop above the main farewell space. Light penetrates through the cross inside the space during the day, and sparks out into the darkness during the night.
