  • The main motive in this proposal is a set of cupolas that stand out above the Villalbilla's skyline. Perforated drums are the only source of sunlight in the building.

    Peripheral location and position as an edge arose a double problem: it has it back to the village and doesn't allow a close view from any building. In order to solve these problems have been taken the main decisions of the project: propose a sober façade and create a transitional space between de urbanized and non-urbanized area. An open piazza is created which works as a meeting point and pre-liturgical space.

    Two stripes contain functional program and treat the dividing walls, which will be constructed in the future. The nave will be an exempt and singular element.
