Half-open and accessible from both sides, the church-yard acts as a filter, a space designed to have a cosy feel despite its function as a passageway. The entrance adopts an unusual solution: visitors do not find themselves facing a predefined axis in the centre of the main façade, but a multitude of different directions, all filtered by the church-yard, which acts as a single nave leading people toward the centre of the church.
Recreational activities and parish celebrations can be held in the church-yard.
The simplicity of the church's design and its ability to reflect the building's functions and blend in with its natural setting reveal the studio's "lay" spirit, meaning its emphasis on the single project rather than on belonging to an established architectural school or current.
