Chapel in Tarnów

Since the idea was to have the chapel erected by untrained workers from the area, the architects opted for a timber form of construction without complicated details. The design gesture is simple, but powerful: the long side walls are covered over their full area with a fine layer of wood shingles that merge seamlessly with those on the steeply pitched roof. Even the entrance front has a closed face, with timber cladding that follows the horizontal structure of the shingles.
