Greek Orthodox Chapel | Michail Georgiou

When you think of an Orthodox church, a very traditional image most likely comes to mind. This Greek Orthodox chapel in Paphos, Cyprus, however, is a contemporary take on traditional architecture. Architect Michail Georgiou combined forms typical of Byzantine churches in order to create a modern version which looks as much like a sculpture as it does a church. The chapel has been made by extruding a section along a longitudinal axis, resulting in a legible, lightweight and welcoming form. Inside, the small chapel is light and airy, and decoration has been kept minimal. Photos below, by Charis Solomou.
