When the chapel of the Osthofen cemetery was rebuilt in 1956, Kükelhaus was invited by Soest’s construction management office to renovate the interior design. He designed the structure of the window sheets and inserted in them small colored glass windows. A particularly skillful work is, in my opinion, his design of the duplex portal in the front wall of the hall. This wooden portal – entirely covered with copper sheets and laminate partitions – displays simply hammered linear bands resembling waves and large, oriental art-like inserted semi-precious stones.
