Church in Sokal
Location: Sokal, Ukraine
Concept of the temple proceeds from combination of the modern needs and demands with mentality and tradition of the Ukrainian church. The dome dominates the space of the temple over all the nave. The nave of the optimum shape without inner columns contains the maximum number of believers. The planning structure of the church continues the tradition of the Ukrainian wooden church. The main entrance from the west is equipped with a vestibule for thermal and wind protection. One more evacuation exit is designed from south of Pidkovy Street. Choruses and by-passing balconies are organized around the main nave on the upper level.
