Description Change this

Dravlje church is one of the most original designed Slovenian contemporary churches. It was built as an extension of the old Baroque pilgrimage church. The new church creates a respectful dialogue with the environment as well as the old church. The building itself is partially dug into the ground and covered with green roof. The church is conceived as a complex composition of interconnected circular and semi-circular spaces. The circular platform for the collection of believers in the open leads to the church hall with glass facade and concrete roof covering.
