Often, when a person wants to think about the most intimate or turn to the Almighty, he goes somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Guided by these thoughts, the Greek architects developed a project of a small chapel. The building will be built right in a rocky cliff overlooking the Aegean Sea.

According to the architects' project, it will be located on the island of Serifos, built right into a rocky cliff near the Aegean Sea. Simple outlines and rough finish with an untreated concrete surface will blend perfectly with the surrounding arid landscape.

The traditional forms of the chapel will resemble a cross. However, it will be traced not in horizontal outlines, as is done in Catholic churches, but in vertical ones. For access to natural light, a multi-colored long stained glass window on the ceiling and wide window openings that will overlook the endless expanses of the sea are designed.
