Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Article source: Zhang Lei / AZL architects

The project – a 200 square meter small chapel, is located in Wanjing Garden along Nanjing’s Riverfront. Hosted by priests from Nanjing Union Theological Seminary, it supports religious activities like worship and wedding services. This wood and steel structured chapel has gentle exterior shape as well as strong interior space infused with mysterious religious power. Its plain material doesn’t fail in expressing the delicate construction logic.

The Chapel in Hochiminh city, Vietnam by a21studĩo

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Article source: a21studĩo

The Chapel is a community space in a new urban ward on the outskirt of Hochiminh city, Vietnam. As the result of estate crisis, the surrounding area is lacking of communal centers; therefore, the Chapel is designed to be the place for people, especially the youth, to participate in activities such as conferences, weddings, exhibitions or enjoying a light coffee and snack.

THE CARMELITE CHAPEL OF MONTREAL in Canada by Éclairage Public

Monday, July 29th, 2013

Article source: Éclairage Public

Montreal’s Carmelite Chapel made its home somewhat out of the way of the city’s core in 1875. Its solemn architecture reflects the medieval roots of the Carmel tradition, save for some of the chapel’s neo-gothic details. Our work revolved around the renovation of the plastered walls and the ceiling’s marouflage panels.
