The project of the Orthodox chapel, which will be built on the picturesque slopes of the Dnieper, near the walls of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra - in the Park of Eternal Glory near the Holodomor Memorial. Taking into account the meaningful and stylistic context of this place, as well as based on the wishes of the investor, we stopped our choice on the ancient Russian brick temple architecture as the main architectural solution. With small dimensions (12x12 m, height with a cross 21.6 m), this church is not lost in the landscape of a cozy park and gives a feeling of loneliness and tranquility - a valuable opportunity for a person in the center of a large noisy city.
