Nikola and Spiridon Temple Center

Best Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
The temple center features the late Byzantine style and matches the traditional old architecture of the Crimea, but also has some modern elements. The major and the minor churches are different in terms of architecture and yet look harmoniously, connected with an open gallery and a guest room above it with a view over the temple premises. The parish with a school, an entrance group and a holy-water chapel are also parts of the ensemble. The chapel stands at a pond and regardless it small size, becomes a compositional centerpiece.
