Treptow Crematorium, Berlin

Although there are only three colours used in this building, the changing light outside creates even more colours inside, like here where the yellow/orange sunset comes in through the windows, while the very saturated blue light from the sky comes in through the light-openings in the ceiling and the windows on the opposite side of the sunset. Very glad we stayed here so long that we got to see this. Cause when we arrived everything in here was just grey and then suddenly for a few minutes the place just exploded in colours and light..!
