Contrast and yet harmony between the old and the new
 The contemporary architectural design of the Orthodox Centre, standing next to the Orthodox church and among the preserved trees, lives to the full potential of its reflexivity when the green colour of the glass panes merges with the green tree leaves, and when, in the autumn and winter months, the dark tree silhouettes are reflected on the glass surface.
