Made of stone and wood, the little church by bernardo bader architekten sits on top of a hill in Krumbach, Austria.
Like a gem – topographically attractively situated on the hill near Krumbach, Austria, the chapel is built out of wood and stone. Its shape is based on the existing 200-year-old Lourdes chapel and includes a main ship and an apse. The shape of the room is new: an outstanding steep rising spatial folding made out of wood. The view straight ahead through the white apse leads directly into the nature.
The chapel is a solitaire of expressive architecture. It originated from a creative process of planning and building, of an extraordinary together of the citizens, the artisans and the architect. Architectural flair, craft-constructive knowledge and passion manifest themselves with great self-concept. The chapel as epitome of a timeless and landscape-related architecture. Whoever enters the chapel leaves the solid ground and proceeds a reflective journey.
