OFIS (an Italian architecture firm) built this chapel for an existing Slovenian cemetery close to Ljubljana. The chapel is cut into the rising landscape and the shape is follows the contours of the geographical landscape around the graveyard.
The cross is positioned on the rooftop above the main final prayer space reflecting a sense of looking up into the heavens while the light that shines through it reminds us of the Holy Cross.
The total area for this chapel, including the external and internal space, is about 350sqm.
