The Votive Temple of Peace is the parish church of Conca d’Oro, one of the most prestigious districts of the city of Bergamo. Just a few minutes away from the historic center, this area is known for the quality of the common areas, ample green spaces and for its predominantly luxury residential character.
The temple was strongly supported by the community in 1943, to fulfill a vow made during the World War II. From compact and massive form of the exterior, it passes to the monumental and airy interior, where the believer feels deeply captivated and involved.
The design of the entrance doors to the Temple incorporates the geometries of the whole: the wooden slats placed vertically underline the height and minimalist rigor of the façade.
The copper-bronze details create a strong contrast with the warmth of wood used and add a traditional material of artistic value to the composition. In this particular project we can see at work the quality of Carminati tailor-made products.
