This beautiful church, named Panagia Kakaviotissa, is located on Lemnos island. Kakavos is the name of the mountain which is built on, in 1416 AC, by some monks who were trying to escape the Ottomans’ invasions. Its unique characteristic is that it’s roofless and built inside a rock cave.
Greek-based OPA (open platform for architecture) has conceptualized the ‘Chapel of the Holy Cross’, a religious building that translates symbolism, tradition and belief into space with a materiality based on the simplicity and harmony of contemporary architecture.
Proposed for the island of Serifos in Greece, it possesses a single cliff façade that faces the Aegean sea, positioning the view to the sea. The ‘Chapel of the Holy Cross’ is a complete, evocative study of aesthetics, structure, function and engineering enhanced by tradition waiting for realization.
