The project is trying to create a well defined space that offers protection, intimacy and peace in an open harsh landscape and at the same time trying to connect this space to the place, the landscape, the horizon, and to the sky. These aims are achieved by shaping the terrain in a hill contrasting a hollow, and overlaying this new landscape with a composition of open and closed spaces formed in trees, hedges and plains, arranged assymmetrically around an axis, intersecting the frame, that are protecting the churchyard.
