Czech Church Building

The designed building represents usage both ancient and modern architectural principles in a simple concept that uses proportions of the terrain and transformation of principles of various classical cultures.

The building, although small in size reaches -all above the earth- and a symbolic route runs into a distance. By setting the building deeper into the ground an optimum acoustic comfort is reached while the volume of the building remains at its minimum.

The exterior was designed to resist vandalism: transparent coating on fair-face concrete, wired glass and fine latticing. The interior is designed to provide comfortable homely atmosphere for a small community. It is simple and it should be made up with plants.
