Solar vineyard chapel in Franschhoek, South Africa by Margot Krasojevic Architects

Solar Chapel at the HoldenManz Wine Estate, Franschhoek, Cape Town. The project utilizes the same solar panel technology used on the farm to clad the expanding wedding chapel’s roof structure. The vertiginous mountains within the estate are reflected in the beton brut primary structure off which the concentrator Fresnel lenses, solar panels and holographic filters are suspended. The concentrator photovoltaics arrangement uses an angular configuration similar to that of a butterfly’s wing receiving more exposure to solar rays affording maximum efficiency for electrical output. The frame expands and contracts enabling a further rearrangement of this concentrator photovoltaic cluster.
