Chapels

The opportunity to design and build a sanctuary space carries with it great responsibility and great pleasure in equal measures.

Meaning, symbolism, and metaphor move to the center of the discussion, asking to be distilled in physical form while other considerations take a supporting role. A successfully designed chapel should not just work, it should inspire.
