About object:

Since old times, one of essential tasks during the creation of sacral objects was implementation of traditional religious symbols throughout the object structure from the whole to the details.

Convent of Sisters of Divine Providence Congregation in Panevezys is a very clear, warm building for sacral purpose, playing no act in historical style. The structure is formed of two pent-roof rectangular volumes in the background. In their intersection there is a spacious hall formed where the three-storey building is divided into different functional areas.

Most part of the convent is occupied by the room: on the ground floor – a dining room, domestic premises, library, and the first floor has living-rooms for guests designed. Attic floor accommodates cells. Opposite the hall there is a chapel in elegantly notched rectangular volume of the first floor. The dialogue is knitted through natural materials and calm, neutral colour solution with the adjacent development and convent guests. The interior of the chapel also savours with cosiness and warmth, where the only attraction is wooden roof structures rhythmically slipping away the ceiling.
