The first thoughts of the chapel began to unfold as our wedding approached. We wanted to capture this important and special event also in the language of architecture and to create something deeply personal. The location of the project is a previously abandoned, then re-discovered agricultural area, that replaced its original function for weddings.


According to the main principle of the installation, the chapel is placed close to the center of the area, but in a separate, intimate part of the territory. 
The concept of the chapel is coming from the examination of the basic form of the churches, and based on the apse - the ending of the sanctuary of the Christian churches. The chapel evokes traditional Romanesque temples, both in form and proportions. 
It serves as a privileged place for the whole area, however with its thinness it is able to fit into the environment, giving a frame to the stretching lanes of the Vértes Mountains lying in the background.


The used materials are characterized by simplicity, the steel plates carry simultaneously the harmony of the timeless and the constantly changing characteristics. The semicircular apsis suggests a kind of openness that - with the temporary alleys and the walls - creates the atmosphere of the sacredness of the marriage. The chapel was built by us with the help of our friends.
