Project description

The Adventist Church in Cesena is composed of two buildings, joined by a fully glazed atrium, which gives access to both buildings.
One of the two blocks host the hall of worship, which is accessed through a door disproportionately small compared to the importance and breadth of space. The request of the commission was to make such access more representative and worthy of the function hosted, exploiting the niche in which the door was inserted.

It was decided to create a single surface treated the same way to disguise the whole door through the symbol of the Latin cross.  The unique surface has been obtained by 12 panels of enamelled glass, behind which is mounted a structure of metal uprights inclined each other and slightly detached from the glass surface. In this way from the outside is perceptible only the outline of the plot drawn from the uprights, which create a unifying motive on the whole surface.
A large wooden cross, which takes the whole height of the portal, stands on it
