  About us



In the middle of the forest above the Rhine, there is a wooden cabin that serves as a hermitage. This is to be extended with an oratory. Taking the form of a Greek cross, the rising cubical room is lighted from above by a lantern and, to the sides, by slotted windows. The entire construction above the undressed stone plinth has been formed of wood.

With this project, the way of life of a reclusive, contemplative existence appears to be congruent with the austerity of the architecture. The hermitage stands in mute silence between the lofty trees.
