Silhouette of chapel is taken from traditional Ukrainian wooden church tower.
Surroundings of pinewood forest conditioned vertical shape of the chapel. Small floor area (9 m2) compensates by high interior space. Square floor plan, thanks to tilted walls, twisted at an angle of 10⁰, ends on the top in the form of octagonal star. The lower horizontal light gives the impression of elation.
The structural scheme is a traditional frame covered with shingles. Two types of lighting: the first resembles candles, the second – luminous cross. Entrance is a part of opened wall. The glass door gives the impression of openness.
