We chose to place the project at the edge between the old excisting cemetery and the adjacent forest. The excisting cemetery has an almost grid-like structure and early in the design phase, we chose to work this grid structure into a central square/ ”piazza” on which you arrive before entering the church.

From this central piazza the visitor will find,besides an erected bell tower as a vertical counterpart to the long horisontal path leading from the existing cemetery to the new building, on his left hand a smaller building containing offices for the priest, staff, the chapel, storage etc. On the right side, the visitor will find the main church room itself, the choir, hallway, parishroom etc.
