The concept for the liturgy hall inherits the materiality of the site,a historical Lviv cemetery, and its planning methods. The new volume relates to the territory and its existing functionality. The use of massive simple forms grounds the building and makes it easy to read both in terms of function and compositional dominance. The simple form serves as a complex spatial and functional organizer, promotes operational simplicity and low-demand care for the building and its territory. The choice of materials and massiveness of the building will contribute to its aesthetic aging and durability.
The main task for the new building was to create religious magnificence which is not biased to any confession. The liturgy hall contains basic proportions and compositional principles inherent to almost all religious buildings. The plan is based on the square and the circle shapes which are dividing it into two spaces - for the living and for the dead.
