A convent (or a monastery) is a building with a complex and inconsistend character. It is designed to function both as
a religious center and as a small settlement of people. A buidling of this kind is designed to enclose a bounded world
devoted to the spiritual life. At the same time the building serves an organized community that intends to have nothing
in common with the worldly model of life.
