The client asked for a design for the courtyard of the Reformed Church in Crasna. The greatest concern in this case was the absence of a place where people could gather before and after the church service.
Our solution to this problem was to generate a protective pavement around the church, which would connect all the alleys, and the creation of an open space near the monuments, that would serve as a get-together area.
We used cubic stones all over the alleys in order to create the illusion of a traditional weave completely covering the ground and holding the church.
