The forest cemetery „Ruhewald Schloss Tambach“ with a chapel designed by Sacher Locicero Architectes offers people to find their final resting place in the nature of the forest.
The tree population of the forest cemetery has a landscape park-like character. In many religions and cultures the cemetery is a sacred place and is usually located in very special scenic places. Tombs and places of worship are sometimes among the oldest testimonies of human civilization.
In its clear form, the devotional room follows the proportions of the golden section according to the teachings of the "Vitruvian Man" by Leonardo da Vinci. It should convey simplicity and openness and offer visitors and their survivors a protective cover. The chapel has a floor space of about 36 square meters and is constructed as a wooden construction. Harmoniously integrated into the trees of the cementary forest, the devotional room will create an extraordinary atmosphere. The clear orientation of the room and the directing of the view into the forest create an interplay between nature, man and sacred space.
