Designed as an addition to the Kazan Mayor’s residence, Prayer Space conjure a spiritual atmosphere for prayers. Placed in a lake, the space is isolated and so may embrace the sense of being in nature free from distractions. The design is not based on a specific religion but on the idea of providing an absolute respite from time and space while worshipping or meditating.
