The construction of a new two-storey building with basement is proposed in order to cover the needs and to improve the functionality of the retreat as well as the living conditions of the monks ant the visitors. The new, wide-front, two-storey building is located at the northern side of the existing one, at a distance of 8 m parallel to the latter. Living spaces are developed in the first floor, while a kitchen and a living room-welcoming room for visitors are shaped in the ground floor. The basement is designed for the installation of an incense production workshop, the ancillary spaces for its function and other secondary rooms (storages, boiler room etc) as well.
The new building will have morphological characteristics corresponding to the existing buildings and it will be governed by a morphological simplicity in order to achieve its harmonic accession to the natural and constructed environment.
