The building contains a religious/silence space in which mainly catholics, islamics and protestants can keep their services, but also other philosophy’s and religions such as Buddhism or people without religion. It serves as a relaxing and inspiring place. Different religions also have different elements that are important to express the faith. These elements are as minimal as possible displayed and intertwined with each other. In order to provide a space in which everyone feels at home and does not interfere with each other’s elements.The design is a layered structure. The transition of the busy outside life is reduced to the inside. Transparency and accessibility are important in order to make people feel welcome. The routing through the building flows from busy to quiet space. The round-shaped walls provide a relaxing open structure, which surrounds the various functions. The core: The religious area is embraced with the other functions, such as the library and the cafe / meeting room. One moves to the core, not only physically but also mentally.
