The resurrection chapel, situated in the extension of an old gravel pit, defines a new meeting place through its location. The open chapel room creates its atmosphere through the characteristic wooden construction and invites you to pause. The use of natural materials (larch and spruce wood) in combination with sharpened concrete gives the chapel an unmistakable appearance.
