Shrine For Secrets

DMOA Architecten en tant que Architectes.

A shrine for secrets…a vertical book covered with natural slates protecting people’s most important documents. Books filled with important decisions, business deals, statements and vows. A custom made building for a team of notaries doing their day by day work. An age-old profession functioning in a modern and natural interior. Clients feel immediately at home and enjoy the integrity oft he atmosphere.


After a long row of typical ribbon development along the busy road, suddenly the row is stopped. The vertical shrine puts an end to the rythm by its height and massiveness. It gives a break tot he busy street and creates a monumental beacon what people coud expect from a notary. Secrets to keep hidden for eternity…
