The external curve is dividing the surrounding hill from chapel plateau and also reinstates main supporting wall. Services such as storage, wardrobe restrooms and a kitchenette are on the inner side along the wall. The internal curve is embracing the main farewell space. It is partly glazed and it opens up towards the outside plateau for summer gatherings.
The roof is following its own curvature and forming an external porch.
The cross as a catholic sign is featured as a laying feature positioned on the rooftop above the main farewell space. It also functions as luminous dynamic element across the space during the daytime and lighting spark at a night time.
The materials used are polished concrete, larch wood, glass.
